EXT2fs on windows is OK,with the odd permissions quirk.
Functionality-wise, NTFS-3g on Linux is good, but I've noticed that
running the NTFS-3G/fuse layer actually consumes a noticeably large
amount of CPU on older machines, so performance-wise not so good (I
think it may be a general FUSE thing due to the userland component).
