SkyOS USB support has been (re-)added to SkyOS, including of course the USB stack, a UHCI driver, support for control, interrupt, and bulk transfers, a USB HUB driver, a USB HID Keyboard driver, a USB HID Mouse driver, a USB Mass storage driver for CBI devices, including USB Harddisks, card readers, etc. The USB stack has been written from scratch and a new release containing USB support is expected.

As a SkyOS loyalist, I agree with you. USB Support has been a very, very, important feature that was missing for a long period of time. However, Robert has been working on many changes to the Kernel since the 4.X versions (Side note: SkyOS did have USB support in 4.X). And, if your a programmer I'm sure you know this but, when your changing a kernel or simply writing one to begin with, it simple doesn't make sense to start working on Driver, or even application support. That aside, I would like to congratulate Robert on this, long awaited, feature!
