I think Jo have been talking about a decent filesystem, not about a ms-dog
shit ;-)

I haven't noticed VFAT would support executable flags, user and group
privileges and other stuff.

Hehe, ask the author of SPIN how easy it was to port it from MiNT to MagiC!

sounds like an answer from Magnus ;-)

Yes, there's aFTP (from ATACK). They were talking with me last weekend
about TCP stacks under TOS, MiNT and MagiC. The result is that their next
internet application (wonderful e-mail client) will NOT support STing! Yes,
STing support causes them just headaches and hundreds of user questions why
it doesn't work.

Maybe that people use it, but you can't notice that since you run under
MagiC ;-))

Hopefully N.AES 1.2.0 will look better.
