FAT is getting fatter! Time for something else!

So, now that microsoft has suddenly realized that many people are depending on their FAT filesystem, they want to start charging manufacturers for using their patented invention, showing us again, that real progress of computers is not their real aim, but making money – at our cost, (of course!) is the only aim of this giant company.

While, players like Google and even Yahoo give out a lot of useful software for free… I would assume that FAT would be free for use – because it automatically glues people to their shitty operating systems!

I have a serious call to make to all consumers, manufacturers and the geeks worldover – we need to change the filesystem used by these devices, and also prepare seamles drivers for them to work with shitty operating systems like windows – so the cost of licensing does not have to go to either the company or to us. Enough is enough.

We need open source drivers because microsoft does not have the expertise (n)or willingness to keep up with the rest of the world.

I’d only like to tell this company one little thing – “Behaving a leech is only going to make you get called a leech…”
