Hey guys!
I think this might be the appropriate place to ask my question. If not, I apologize and would appreciate if you could direct me to the right place.

My query is the following.
I've recently been extremely tempted to put Mac OS on my netbook.
Although, my main concern is the following; If I make a dual boot, for example Ubuntu 12.04 (my current OS) and mac ... would the files be readable in both boots?
Are Mac files compatible with Linux files? (referring specifically to saved written data, photos and videos, among others) - and vice-versa.
It's been a long long time since I last used Mac, hence my naivity, but I know most files are somewhat compatible between linux and m$. Does the same apply when talking about Mac?

Thank you beforehand.
