Linux The FAT file system is the file system used by MS-DOS and earlier versions of Windows. It's a relatively simple and straightforward file system, supported by just about any operating system, making it the favoured file system on memory cards and the like. FAT is an ECMA and ISO standard, but these only apply for FAT12 and FAT16 without support for long file names, and therein lies a problem.

Well...

MS sued Tom-Tom as a PR move, something to scare people from Linux. That way it makes sense to sue for such a non-important piece of technology.
