Wie Microsoft Leute von FAT32 zu NTFS treibt

In order to create the FAT32 partitions, I used mkfs on the linux machine. Windows 2000 is perfectly happy USING a large fat32 partition, but if you try to create one, it runs through what appears to be an entire format process, and then fails at the end with a message that the filesystem is too large. Even the windows help says that this is by design, and that it’s got nothing to do with inherent limits to fat32, it’s just to encourage (also known as force) you to use NTFS instead. Why they go ahead and let the program run through 99% of a time-consuming process before failing rather than just having it tell you right away is left as an exercise to the reader.
