Been using both for quite some time, happily and successfully.
fs-driver is 'nicer' but no go for Win 7. fs-driver is fine for win
7, after turning off uac.
Ultimately, I turned off both - they corrupt themselves when hit hard
for prolonged periods - such as backing up C: to them. I blame windows
for this - it feels like win has a memory leak or something, so the
driver doesn't get all it should under hard usage.
In a dual-boot machine I'll have a Win OS partition, a Linus OS
partition, and a shared ext2 data partition.
Neither are ext3 (journalling), let alone ext4.
