    I reckon the FAT32 one was thrown in for the sake of it, you'll notice there were other patents they were filing against. Microsoft hasn't previously sued over FAT or FAT32 (IIRC) but the commentators on slashdot think that's because it's likely the FAT patents wouldn't stand scrutiny.
    Yeah it looks like the bulk of the patents have to do with GPS, but just throwing the FAT32 patent in there is kind of strange.
