Is it not FAT, so that it can be exported as "mass storage"? The rationale 
being, that most host operating systems would have FAT drivers on board?

I think that for many of us, the systems we connect to via USB already have 
drivers for other file systems than FAT.

Do you have an idea of the general area in the QtMoko sources, where there 
might be a check on the FS type? I can try to have a look if I can get 
anywhere with some pointers. Or is there a mass storage standard, that does 
not allow for other FS than FAT?

Best regards,
