Will Linux use NTFS as correctly as windows?

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I had a bad experience once when I did some unexpected behavior and maybe the power went out and a Windows driver I used to access my Mac harddrive fudged something enough that even my Mac couldn't recover the filesystem. I was able to use a disk recovery program to scan the drive and save what it could on an external HD. I lost a lot of data, I don't want that to happen again. So I'm asking this, is there any problems with Linux using NTFS? If I power it out, pull cables, do weird things and run Linux using a virtual machine (and repeat all madness there) will I have any problems? Obviously (HowTos)
