I'm getting an external drive enclosure for an old IDE hard drive.

I going to load data(and movies) on it and want it accessible from Windows XP and Linux.
As to the file system, should I use ext2/3 on the drive and use ext2ifs to access it from Windows?
Or use the ntfs file system and use ntfs-3g to access the drive from Linux?

I use Linux so the answer should be self-evident but will appreciate any considerations that I may have overlooked.
Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks and cheers :-)
