"Not anymore, the fat32 patent has long been invalidated"

There are several patents related to FAT32 and whilst a couple were invalidated, Microsoft won every case for revenue against Motorola, TomTom etc based on the remaining patents as far as I am aware.

Anyway the patents for exFAT were only issued in 2013 and they are all still valid. Hard not to support that in any device that needs large cross platform removable storage. Even the PS4 licences it...
