BeOS & Derivatives "An increasing number of people get interested in the progress of Haiku USB and they start to ask questions about the completeness and usability of the stack. Also whether and how to use the Haiku USB stack under R5 is an interesting question. Instead of telling the story individually it probably makes more sense to sum everything up in a post for everyone to read."

So in summary I could gain USB2 speed for HDDs and flash sticks but might lose the KB and mouse right?

Think I will wait a bit more till I am sure not to lose anything but good news anyway.

You're referring to the lack of a complete OHCI implmentation for the "low speed" and "full speed" devices?

Depending on the chipset for your motherboard, yes - this could be true. UHCI should exist, however, which is present in Intel and Via chipsets.

I'm certain it's just a matter of time before someone completes the OHCI support (original developers probably didn't have sufficient access to hardware and docs).

It depends, really. I've personally tested the USB stack under R5 -- the whole kit and kaboodle at once. I did run into bugs, such as not being able to pull pictures off my Olympus D-370 digital camera despite it being a mass storage device. At the same time, I was able to use a preliminary R5 version of PhotoGrabber to get photos off my PTP-based digital camera. It also seemed pretty slow, too. At this point, it needs to be debugged further, but it's definitely a work in progress.
