But really, it's a FAT based filesystem that open implementations can still read/write to should the need be there, who cares? Let 'em have their locked away filesystem add-ons, there's so much better out there and on the way.
As far as patenting goes, that covers implementation, if they do their transactional IO differently then it doesn't come under that patent, and if they don't do it different, then the patent holder is probably just someone else who Samsung have a licensing agreement with adding constraints. It's just business.
