At linuxwiki.de we use Linux and ext3 file system and we have no 
problems. 1300 pages.

As many as a real filesystem on a real OS can.

That is a weird "solution" to your problem. Why don't you solve the 
problem at its root?

If you must use windows, then at least choose NTFS instead of that 
braindead FAT filesystem that was designed for floppies 20 years ago.

But choosing Linux would be the best solution. reiserfs would be very 
space efficient with many small files, but maybe not as stable as ext3.
