Re: exFAT

That's interesting news regarding exFAT. But that "non-commercial" sounds somewhat weaselly. While that might be useful for Linux, BSDs, etc (no bad thing), does it mean that if Apple were to want to support it in MacOS, they'd still have to stump up licensing fees to Microsoft (which I can't see them being keen to do)?
