    Understood, but ntfs-3g is installed by default in Ubuntu, and it is not that hard to find for OSX... plus it is a much better filesystem then FAT32.

    HFS+ is actually not a bad filesystem, it is just getting aged.
    There were some big updates to FUSE recently and I think that Unix File Systems (UFS, but not the Apple variety) will now work in Ubuntu and OSX. You could probably get ZFS running in Ubuntu if you really HAD to.

    I have used the ext2 filesystem for my Ubuntu partition - this way, the extfsmanager drivers work perfectly on OS X.
    yes, but then you lose journaling which makes it about as good as fat32.

    Ugh, well I'll see if my dad, who's a computer nerd who totally knows his stuff but uses Mac anyway (WTF???) can help with my problem when I see him in a few days.

    Oh wait, I think he uses Mac because he gets paid bank to take pictures and/or write books about using new Apple products and software.

    I don't use Ubuntu for anything other than dicking about with CompizFusion and internet browsing, filesystem limitations really don't bother me as it isn't my primary (or even secondary) OS.

    Being able to write to it from OS X does come in handy though..

    Well, it looks like if and when there's a solution, I won't find it here.

    Marking it solved.

    IDK why you say that, I would say that if and when there is a solution, I would expect it to pop up pretty quick on the forums here.
