Superior in what way? Sure it has better security functions, but overall that seems to be it. They both get the job done. 8)

I did not notice it being any faster the one time that I used it. Then again, I didn't do any benchmarks on it either, so who knows. :?

NTFS has smaller cluster sizes on large drives/ partitions which makes for less wasted space by partially used clusters. That is the only advantage to the user who has no need for security. The down side is that there is a certain percentage of the drive reserved for the NTFS overhead so it may or may not save space on a small drive. I have noticed no distinct speed advantage.

That, plus it gets less fragmented than FAT. I don't think it's faster either.
