    often when you buy a web cam, usb key, memory card.... compagny give you some different software... so this driver could be installed at this time.
    Good luck installing that on a locked corporate/university/internet caf? ( etc etc ) account.

If they can't connect the phone to the computer, they have to effectively re-download it all to take it with them, which, disregarding piracy, means money. What do you want high capacity storage for if you will only use online content?

    Also, there are the other options other posters pointed out, which require drivers for PCs. Most of which use Windows.
    In fact, the reason I don't use it myself in my pendrives is I have to interoperate with Windows users.
    I literally never plug my phone into a computer unless its for development.

    I use Google Music and Google+ for music and photos. Even if you don't want to use those online services there's still no reason to need to plug your phone in, before I used online services I transferred everything over WiFi.

    Now that PC/laptops are secondary I don't think the lack of a windows driver is really what is holding F2fs success back. I guess it is more about its young age, but 2014 looks good given that Google/motorola took the leap of faith. We should see more of it pretty soon, esp. with low spec Android and FirefoxOS devices which need to take advantage of such important and tested innovations.
    Ubuntu Touch would certainly benefit a lot from it too.

    F2fs was designed with mobile and on-board devices in mind. Benefiting from it on your main SSD is great (if you can let your windows partition aside most of the day) but certainly secondary to the main challenge.
    So adoption is about manufacturers deciding it is safe to use it and boast about its advances.
    What about USB flash drives and SD cards?

    I was more thinking USB Mass Storage devices. And for all those mobile devices that expose themself as USB mass storage devices, not MTP.

    Using F2FS as main filesystem is crazy if you have ntfs as well IMHO.

    I use it on my SDHC cards and USB sticks and I like it.

    Only thing missing is GRUB2's abiility to boot from it...
