Partner organization:

UDF is an universal disk format file system, which can be used on
optical rewritable and non-rewritable media, USB flash drives and hard
The file system is supported by all modern operating systems, including
Windows, BSD, MacOS X, Solaris, OS/2|eComStation, BeOS|Haiku as well as
Linux kernel, making it one of the best choices to use when
transferring data between platforms.
UDF also has optional built-in ability to minimize wearing-off of
rewritable media with limited rewrite cycles such as flash, CD-RW and
DVD-RAM by evenly distributing load over the media, including access to
the allocation table.
Despite this Yast2 partition manager does not suggest option to format
a volume into UDF, thus forcing to use a mkudffs command line tool.
