MS가 직접 exFAT을 리눅스 커널 mainline에 추가하니 봅니다.
일단, 리눅스에서 무료로 사용할 수 있는 것 같습니다.

Extended File Allocation Table (exFAT)

The exFAT file system was introduced in 2006 and was added to older versions of Windows with updates to Windows XP and Windows Vista.
exFAT is optimized for flash drives—designed to be a lightweight file system like FAT32, but without the extra features and over head of NTFS and without the limitations of FAT32.
exFAT has very large limits on file and partition sizes., allowing you to store files much larger than the 4 GB allowed by FAT32.
Compatibility : Works with all versions of Windows and modern versions of Mac OS X, but requires additional software on Linux. More devices support exFAT than support NTFS.
Limitations : No realistic file-size or partition-size limits.
Ideal Usage : Use it when you need bigger file size and partition limits than FAT32 offers and when you need more compatibility than NTFS offers.

많은 사람들이 MS가 윈도우를 결국 포기할 것 이라고 예상하는군요. 아마 윈도 12,13에서는 리눅스 커널에 WINE이 올라가지 않을까요? :-)
"I think the day when the next version of "Windows" is based on Linux is not too far away"
"Absolutely. Microsoft has pretty clearly given up on Windows. I fully expect that Windows 12 or 13 will be a nix-based OS that heavily integrates WINE to provide backward compatibility."
