[clug] Dual boot and shared home folder

Hi Guys,

I have unfortunately found the need to go back to a dual boot system for 
my PC.

The old PC is a bit too slow to run a Windows VM all that well, so I am 
left with little choice.

Was planning to chuck Windows on a separate hard disk, and use Grub to 
select drives.

I want to avoid doubling up on a "home" folder, and was hoping for some 
suggestions to what I could use. Should I use an NTFS partition (which 
isn't journalised and a pain the arse) or should I look at an EXT3 / 4 
driver for Windows 8?

Thanks in advance
