I received my USB drive in the mail today. It's a Patriot Exporter 8Gb. When I went to format it I had three choices, NTFS, FAT32 and exFAT. Never hearing about exFAT I Googled it. Looks like it's designed for USB drives more or less & can have almost unlimited file sizes and possibly faster.

Any opinions? What format should I use?

It'd be best to avoid NTFS because of the journaling and I don't know about exFAT. I usually just go with FAT32.

exfat is when you work out and your trying to work the fat away, or you can just call it burning fat
