Which was created in **** 1980 ***** . Way to go, beating a filesystem
from 29 years ago, that's the way to show the power of UNIX....

It may have escaped your notice, but NO WINDOWS SERVERS USE A FAT

stick transfer mechanism, as a server filesystem it would be a joke
if anyone actually used it (which they don't).
