Yes, there is, and it even isn't a file system.
It's tar. You can easily create a tar archive
and transfer it from device to device, maybe
using a "transfer hard disk". I know this sounds
stupid, but it works. The disk just needs to be
formatted, it can be a hard disk, an optical
disc, even an USB thumb drive, or a floppy disk.
Doesn't matter. Just format it.


        % tar cvf /dev/<device> <yourstuff>

on the source OS. On the target OS, simply run
this command:

        % tar xvf /dev/<device>

I could employ this method successfully to transfer
data between different UNIXens and Linusi. :-)
