I have recently decided to install FreeBSD on my desktop but I still have several computers running GNU/Linux and I would like to share disk partitions between the two OSs, in particular:
- The computer using FreeBSD will also have a GNU/Linux distribution installed and I would like to have a shared partition that can be read / written by both FreeBSD and GNU/Linux.
- I would like to use external hard-disk drives and USB-sticks from both operating systems.
By reading various documentation and online forums, I understood that
ext2 is the only solution right now:
ufs write-support in Linux is still experimental, FreeBSD has limited support for
ext3, and supports
ReiserFS read-only. Did I miss something, i.e. are there other viable filesystems?
