    go to windows and format an exfat usb key or download the ubuntu driver


    how hard is that, ffs
    It's out-of-process so if anything F2FS vs. exFAT will be saved for its own, separate, multi-page article.

      NTFS if its an external HDD via USB. Again for interoperability.
      Or if you only use Linux...F2FS. (Ext4 if you dont trust F2FS yet.)

      So we're kind of missing 2 out of the 4 filesystems for this >.>
      I can't answer for Michael, but I am guessing, it's because main reason of tests is not to show you which one is best, but rather to point at new one, that is specifically designed for Linux in mind with Samsung to support it.

      If Samsung are about to do this for their cameras and stuff - god knows how far standart may go. Since it's open source - it can be ported to Windows. Ext3 already is!(you need to install special driver for that, but you can mount ext3 and prolly ext4 too)

        you're out of process, this thread is out of process, this entire forum is out of process


        looking forward for that article, also, see how f2fs handles file errors and power failure etc compared to exfat both in sd and usb

        if you are afraid of corrupting large capacity usb keys sd cards I have some crappy and small ones here I can send

If one major player starts breaking the unhealthy reliance of FAT, the world will be a better place.
          Problem is usb mass storage only give direct access to data does not deal with file systems, means lot ofalready existing embedded devices will not able to read it. Its possible to switch but transition will take long.

            Exactly. Sometime it's good, sometime it's bad.
