Default I got a few questions about Windows Vista and NTFS.

For some reason, I never got into Vista, so I want to know a few things.
First, does anyone know the maximum volume size of Windows Vista?
Second, does Vista use NTFS, something different, or both?
Last, I read that the NTFS file system can theoretically support 16 EiB. What exactly does that mean? Has it been proven, or what's the closest it's been proven to? How exactly do they figure that 16 EiB is the limit? Is there a difference from 16 Exbibytes and 16 Exabytes? If anyone could provide some information or external links to any of this information, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Oh, while I'm on the subject, is there any plans for a new file system after NTFS, or is there already one?

Yeah, like John123 says, it will support NTFS, but in the future, I think they will release a new file system that'll be in an update or something?
