"Cross platform" in this case means dual-boot or direct attachment of
the drive (as in USB) to the non-Linux system. If you're only sharing it
across the network (with Samba, for example) it doesn't matter much what
the underlying filesystem is. The file sharing system translates as
needed.

See us at the computer show tomorrow. (www.pcshows.com) SATLUG should
have a demo of network file sharing like that.  --Don
