Basicly NTFS is for NT, 2000 and XP because this is more secure because of the logins and encriptions, and FAT32 and 16, is for Windows 9x and XP

quite simply, FAT is faster but s**tty encryption and NTFS maybe be slower but high encryption and much more reliable.. as i use NTFS myself :)

The (Very Little) speed difference between the 2 is not anything in the way of impact of system performance, NTFS is way more stable and Fragmation is minimal. :)
