I second that.  The other reason why its the file system of my choice is
most video machines, car stereos and other portables seem to mount it
natively. The other file systems are not as widely supported, in my
experience at least.

FAT32 has issues creating file system greater than 4 GB on windows. If you
create the partition and file system from Linux though, you can create go
past that limit, which mean it should not factor in on decision making
