ReactOS Now this is what I like to see. Smaller, alternative operating systems have been dying by the dozens these past 6 years or so, so in order for the remainder to survive, they need to work together. ReactOS and Haiku have been doing that for a while now, and the latest fruits of this collaboration is a much-improved USB stack for ReactOS.

No small feat

As someone else mentioned above, this is no small feat.

Writing a USB stack is *really* hard. I helped a colleague who was working on a client (not host!) USB stack for the MSP430. Even with sample code and some support from TI, it took him almost a month to implement a subset of the ACM functions that we needed. I don't even want to think about what writing the USB host stack involves.
