As far as I know, the NTFS version on Vista and its more modern kin use a transactional model to do the writing and reading to disk. Although that is an extra layer, in most cases it makes the filesystem faster and more reliable.

Until things go wrong, but I explained (or at least tried to) in a previous post on a different thread that I managed to make the Operating system lose contact with the file system (W2008 R2), which destroyed two huge Oracle test databases I maintain.

Anecdotal, but here goes:
Even after aligning the partitions on my XP computer I still feel that the new NTFS version on my W2008 R2 computer is faster (both use SATA2 disks).

However, file handling was faster.
Can you elaborate on your benchmark method? And the speed-improvement (percentage) you found?

FAT32 performs better on smaller partitions.
Quantify "performs better", please?

While ACLs and metadata journaling does "cost a bit", NTFS is a lot more efficient for file lookup than FAT is, and small files can have their content stored directly in the file's MFT record.

Ath and F0dder.  "I found benchmarks online some time ago".  Google is your friend
Notice I edited the last comment
This still means nothing. No numbers, no comparison. Just give a link to the actual testing-tool you used and the configuration that was tested.

OT:
This is beginning to sound like a troll thread >:(
