Are you serious? Well, Richard Stallman would be so proud of you. But by
removing support for FAT and NTFS you wont be able to access flash drives
anymore; including mp3-players, digicams etc..
And if we start caring about software patents we should remove openssl,
mplayer, ffmpeg, mono and a lot of other stuff. There are so many useless
patents that we virtually have to remove just everything.
So, the only sane way to deal with software patents is just to ignore
