Win 9x/Me isn't the only place FAT is used; to my knowledge, FAT is just
about the only (easy, free) way to share filesystems between Windows
(whether 9x/NT/2k/XP/2003) and Linux (by "share", I don't mean SMB or
ICFS, I'm referring to e.g. dual-booters who want a partition to be
visible to both Windows and Linux).

I'm not arguing one way or the other towards a fix, just pointing out
that there are very valid reasons for people to still be using FAT.
