The FAT32 filesystem is the closest thing we have to a universal standard for passing data around, but with the capacity of modern USB flash drives its 4 GB file size limitation has become problematic. exFAT is a popular contender for dealing with that, but the patent issues that surround it make true portability a pipe dream at best.
