Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the Linux kernel already do that out of the box? Maybe it's just me but I haven't used a single Linux distro that didn't support FAT.

It is an extension of very old fight to buy a PC without @#$&# Windows installed on it.
In the recent past I walked into a Starbuck I notice the price off a cup of coffee had gone up. When I asked why the price went up if coffee beans price ad gone down the cashier responded that the price of milk had gone up. I responded, but I drink my coffee black, she just shrugged and said most people drink coffee with cream.

She's right and so are the folks arguing here that FAT is mostly used. I've been using Linux exclusively since '96 and can appreciate when Linux finally added FAT support to their kernel.

I'm not following your argument most lawsuits against Android devices are for patent infringement not copyright, the only copyright case s against Oracle.

Future more the patents in question are not disclosed to the public. Even if Google would address hem they could not most of MS lawsuits are resolved behind closed doors.

Many believe they are frivolous. Any coincidence that the only person who chose to fight ms is now a partner?

For those arguing about Microsoft license fees for FAT, I was pretty sure the amount was minute (not nearly as much as DVD playback license fees, for example).

Here's what I found on wikipedia:
Quote:

A quarter. I'm sure Google already has a license/royalty for FAT support. This is probably why Linux distros support it...it's cheap.

Ah, that's a source of misunderstanding... Nexus 7 is "Google product", and they are free to do whatever they please. There are Android tablets with SD slots for me to chose instead of Nexus.

BUT, Android is offered as a software PLATFORM to other corporate entities. And if Google is in business of NOT killing their own ecosystem (like Microsoft did and no amount of "developers, developers" yelling helped them then), then Google has to clean up the infrastructure and prevent lawsuits not only against themselves, but their partners, too.

Oh well, it would've been something that's nice to have but for the Nexus 7, it's not really a deal breaker for me. I wasn't expecting to be able to expand storage when I pre-ordered. Although, no doubt rooting would allow it eventually.

interesting comment over there

Quote:
Another reason to not allow mass storage on these devices is that the unified partition is formatted as ext4, which Windows won't recognize without a driver. Instead Windows will claim that the drive isn't formatted and offer to format it for you.

I applaud the use of ext4. FAT32 doesn't support files larger than 4GB which can pose a problem for some videos that you might want to watch on the upcoming HD tablets. It's also a problem for making nandroid backups if you're using a custom recovery.

Fat32 supports disk sizes up to 32gb, not 4gb.

he said file sizes not disk size

Quote:
The maximum possible size for a file on a FAT32 volume is 4 GB minus 1 byte or 4,294,967,295 (232−1) bytes.
