There's no Linux kernel that will write ntfs reliable, since the
specs for ntfs aren't open, none is able to develop one. Use a
vfat partition for data exchange or samba if it's remote. There
was some doze app 'explore2fs' to read/write ext2, dunno if it's
still maintained and working with ext3?

Indeed, but it might be scary for the unaware.
