@Steven
Same reasons as for all other popular FSs. NTFS can be good too, of course.

Both EXT3 and NTSF support would make it much easier to read datas from say, Windows and MacOS X systems. It would also be a lot easier for programmers and coders to port applications and such. At least that is how i understand it.

Exchange with the installed LinuxPPC on the same Computer and read/write on USB-Sticks too.

And yes NTFS too also be usefull.

For both Filesystems makes easier to share Big-Files >4GB
For smaller <2GB Fat32 is enough

Mac dosn't use EXT3, not saying it wouldn't be handy though..
Near at hand is your forgetting all; near, too, all forgetting you.

For example, acess to files on Linux partition from AmigaOS side, or having one data partition
for both Linux and AmigaOS. Since all PPC boards are also Linux supported, that would greatly help
those who do boot in Linux for some productivity apps unavail in AmigaOS yet, or simply like to use Linux too.

Also, reading data from PC hard drives (at least those partitions with Linux)

EXT3 and NFTS support is a must in future :-)

I would like ntfs and exFat support as this is the most i use on windows.

Also support for MTU and PTP on samsung mobilephone devices like Galaxy S3. They dont use masstorage like before but MTU that looks and feels almost the same as normal masstorage, at least on windows. On amiga it opens a PTP screen and a error message and fails to show anything. And it never shows a partition but wants to show PTP in both PTP/MTU mode that fails.
