Time to methodically remove FAT support from every open-source project on the planet:
Microsoft wins FAT patent case
Could use it as stick to beat Linux
The US Patent Office has upheld Microsoft's claim of patent rights over its File Allocation Table.
The decision reverses two earlier judgements and potentially allows Microsoft to go after open-source developers who use the technology. FAT controls how computers store information to hard drives and other storage devices such as Flash cards
Is it just me, or is the U.S. Patent Office truly evil? No, no ... don't answer that.
