Most Unix implementations have their own file system formats. Some are better than others for certain tasks. They all work slightly differently, but most are much more efficient than NTFS.

In addition there are a number of third party file system formats which can be used on different Unix flavours. One important third party filesystem missing from the list above is VXFS from Veritas.

Others to add are:
EFS   (Old Irix file system form Silicon Graphics, superseded by XFS)
CXFS (Clustered version of XFS, again Irix)

And main thing - there is no 2G limit for 5-10 years depending on unix system you choose, and every file system supports granular access controls.
and there are networked file systems like AFS (see www.openafs.org), NFS, and SMB (one you call "Network Share")

You're missing the CD ROM filesystems ISO (isofs, iso9660, hsfs and so on) and the
different PC filesystems (like dosfs, dos, pcfs etc.) and many more "pseudo" filesystems like swapfs, procfs, tempfs, doorfs, namefs, cachefs ...
