FAT is not limited in file size because of anything to do with it being block-based: the limiting factors are the size of the field in directory entries for expressing file sizes, and the size of the FAT it self, as blocks are stored in a indirection table (which can be thought of as a linked list.)

Following on to that, it's not just because NTFS supports extents that it supports files larger than 4GB.

NTFS has case-sensitivity, for POSIX compliance. The Windows API hides this.

Folks, I have been reading yakking for 3? 4? years now and your articles have been a very valuable source to refer to co-workers and friend when they were asking about some topics. And even for relearning about some topics myself. Thank you!
