Why do you feel it isn't a good filesystem for cros-os storage?

* It's very fragile if media is ejected while writing is not finished
(as "just happens" with USB media, SD cards etc)
* Not many Consumer electronics devices actually support it, actually I
have more devices that can read NTFS than exFAT
* the various implementations seem to have lots of bugs. In practice,
it does not work too well and there are lots of strange issues.

Executive summaries: I have reverted to NTFS for portable storage if I
potentially need to access it from Windows.
All my consumer electronics embedded devices (Television, Media players
etc) work just fine with ext3 or XFS ;-)
