[Phoronix] Samsung Properly Open-Sources exFAT File-System

post #1 of 3

SOURCE
Quote:
Back in June, Phoronix was the first to report of a native exFAT file-system implementation for Linux that appeared on GitHub. It later turned out that Samsung accidentally leaked their exFAT source code. The solution has now been corrected with Samsung formally open-sourcing their exFAT source code.

good news, exFat makes up for the limitations of Fat32 4gb file size limit going into the future. Should mean exFat and h.265 support on bluray players going forth.

Also I believe NTFS isn't open source and exFat is basically the open source solution to that file system when it comes down to it.

waits for DuckieHo clarification....

Not only that Dlee, it is about the only file system that is natively supported by both Windows and OSX.

exFat can be a godsend with those pesky Mac users needing to share data quickly to other coworkers.
