On file systems on USB sticks ?
All instructions I found online on making a new file system on USB sticks show instructions how to make VFAT fs.
mkfs -t vfat /dev/xxx
But, why ? I mean, aside compatibility with Windows OS, is there any good _technical_ reason not to make ext2 or ext3 or ext4 fs on the USB stick ?
I carry an 2GB usb with ext2fs for few months already, and see no problems. Are ext file systems less suitable for USB sticks, or what ?
