Of course, you can also transfer files the ugly way, using an external storage, like USB stick.
I dual boot ubuntu 10.10 and Windows 7, and I keep a Storage partition formatted to NTFS for any files that aren't OS specific. As mentioned by Galm, both Operating Systems can read it, so it eliminates the need for transferring and keeps a singular copy of everything regardless of where it was modified. You could follow Uri's link, but keeping a Storage partition has worked well for me.
