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."

Let's hope they'll provide all drivers (including Windows one), and no idiot will come up with some patents to disrupt it. It'll solve all the mess with FAT and co.

Let's hope Samsung doesn't want to exercise any patents related to that.
