I have a new computer and are going to install Windows XP.
Which would be the better file system to use

See the post earlier today by Jack Gruschow for benefits and drawbacks of NTFS.

NTFS offers:
Increased Security
Disk Quotas
Less Fragmentation
No Scandisk-On-Startup
Larger Drivers
Larger Files

Also, if you move a file to another location, the shortcut linked to that file will change as well. Cool eh?
