Linux is free open source software. As such you find manufacturers such as Apple, Microsoft and Google will take that code and develop it for their own platforms.

On Linux the ext file system was created in April 1992. On Windows the ntfs file system was created in 1993. Some would say Microsoft Engineers could have looked at Linux systems as a model for their own code. Iā€™m not saying that though :)

Linux can read and write ntfs file systems but it is not a native file system and performance would be sub-standard in many instances. Plus you may have problems with permissions.

Anyway when using Ubuntu the best choice for the average user is ext4 (the fourth extended file system).

HTH (Hope This Helps)
