You wrote, "the best file system to use”. That's not what I wrote. In fact, I intentionally avoided saying "the best system to use". I said, "important/relevant for the stated purposes". There's a difference. I looked up and have not seen me ever stating "best".
I paraphrased one of your questions, in my paraphrase I used the word “best”, but “better” and “best” mean basically the same thing in the English language in my opinion. I have now specified the fact, I paraphrased one of your many questions, later in my answer.
Your answer is inconsistent. After you tried to insult my intelligence by saying that better and best are the same in English and wished me a good day, I don't have to continue this discussion
I respectfully disagree that my answer is inconsistent. It certainly wasn't my intention to insult your intelligence, when I indicated that a question that uses the word "better" or "best", are virtually identical in my opinion. While it's understandable you are upset about the closure of your question, it seems based on the tone of your most recent comments, you are not assuming I have the best intentions. I am not the first person within the community you have become noticeable upset with.
Therefore, I kindly ask to vote for reopening the question.
I respectfully decline to issue a reopen vote on your current question. If the scope of the question was reduced to a couple of questions, and those questions were no longer seeking our opinion, my stance and reopening the question might change.
In fact, the question is technical to the best of my experience. I know very well which answer I would accept if the comments were converted into answers, and for which technical reasons (rather than for which opinions).
Honestly, the commentary that was posted, would make horrible answers to your question. Your question even in its current form cannot be answered in a couple of sentences. In fact, the one answer you did receive, is actually extremely low quality in my opinion.
There is a difference between opinion-based answers and opinion-based questions.
A question is closed when it’s asking for the community's opinion. That is indeed the case when a question asks for, and I paraphrase, “... what is the best file system to use”.
In my understanding, though some answers in the comments are opinion-based, other answers are argument-based.
Commentary is not an answer to a question. Commentary attempting to answer your question should actually be flagged for deletion.
Why was my question closed as "opinion-based", although it handles the same question, in modern times.
Your question was closed due to your multiple questions within your question body. The answers to each of these questions would be highly opinionated.
In fact, the best evidence of this fact is the answer you already received. Ironically, by having so many questions that attempted to clarify your question, it became an extremely broad question that asked 6 different questions.
At the end of the day, Windows uses NTFS by default. Modern versions of Windows can only be installed on NTFS. Windows also doesn’t support any other file system that supports journaling natively.
I would like to point out there hasn’t been an actual new file system released in more than a decade. Even if one has been released it isn’t natively supported by Windows.
Here are those 6 questions from your current question.
Which partition-table type would serve my purposes better: MBR or GPT?
Which cluster size do I choose?
Which file system would serve my purposes better: exFAT or NTFS?
Do I leave it at "standard", whatever this might mean, or is something else more appropriate?
How important are the above tradeoffs for the stated purposes?
Are there more points that are relevant for the stated purposes?
