AFAIK, it's a Windows/Microsoft thing, not an ACER thing.
Windows NT, 2000 and XP all run on NTFS. On a partitioned machine that uses any of these operating systems the primary partition is NTFS, but any subsequent partitions are FAT32.
I'm not a big fan of Windows anyway, my "flavour" or choice is Debian.
