vfat being...? (the NT/95 long filenames stuff?)

There's nothing inherently wrong with the FAT scheme for allocating
disk sectors. Except that you can't have sparse files, and it's not so
good for automatic undeletes, but neither of these is that important.
The problems with the DOS filesystem reflect its age (and lack of
engineering at Microsoft) more than anything else.
