Hi all,

Which file system would you use to use to store you photographs on a new external disk ? ( i need to erase disk as it is brand new).
This disk is going to be used by 3 different operating systems : linux, windows and os x. 

Is Ntfs ok for all systems or will it impede something (not sure how ntfs-3g driver behaves) ?

So far i think i'll use the following softs : Dikigam from linux, Picasa or Xnview from seven, and iphoto or maybe picasa from os x. This if all can manage my pictures and the file system chosen.
Any advice is welcome.
