ext4 and partitioning
That looks very convincing.
There's also a follow-up article:

Thanks for sharing this.

grub4dos ext4 support
Try new version of Grub4DosConfig for ext4.
Supports ntfs, vfat, ext2, ext3, ext4 by standalone. Need not grub legacy anymore.

That is very interesting. I may have to play with ext4. Can we have ext4 as the filesystem within the pupsave and within a truecrypt volume too? I wonder if there is a speedup there too.
I was reading somewhere that ext2 is better for flash drives, because since it is non-journaling there are fewer actual writes, making the drive last longer.
