Linux "F2FS is a new file system carefully designed for the NAND flash memory-based storage devices. We chose a log structure file system approach, but we tried to adapt it to the new form of storage. Also we remedy some known issues of the very old log structured file system, such as snowball effect of wandering tree and high cleaning overhead."

The interesting thing here is that Samsung might (might) release a tool tgat will allow usage of this FS with Windows, breakibg the artificial lockin to FAT32 and exFAT imposed by Windows.

PS: Yes theoretically Apple can file a patent for this, and then Samsung will have to prove prior act which bought/incompetent judges like Koh will ignore
