Situation: I need a filesystem on thumbdrives that can be used across Windows and Linux.
Problem: By default, the common FS between Windows and Linux are just exFAT and NTFS (at least in the more updated kernels)
Question: In terms of performance on Linux (since my base OS is Linux), which is a better FS?
Additional information: If there are other filesystems that you think is better and satisfies the situation, I am open to hearing it.
EDIT 14/4/2020: ExFAT is being integrated into the Linux kernel and may provide better performance in comparison to NTFS (which I have learnt since that the packages that read-write to NTFS partitions are not the fastest [granted, it is a great interface]). Bottom line is still -- if you need the journal to prevent simple corruptions, go NTFS.
EDIT 18/9/2021: NTFS is now being integrated into the Linux kernel (soon), and perhaps this will mean that NTFS performance will be much faster due to the lesser overhead than when it was a userland module.
EDIT 15/6/2022: The NTFS3 kernel driver is officially part of the Linux Kernel as of version 5.15 (Released November 2021). Will do some testing and update this question with results.
