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.

You must be joking. Testing SkyOS on bare metal to its fullest extent is possible if you shell out for an incredibly cheap Realtek 8139D NIC card and possibly a Live! card if you want sound with that. If you are complaining about hardware support, then please point me to your bug reports with debug logs in the SkyOS Bug Tracker.

Tomasz, I would just point out that older PCI SB cards, based on the ensoniq 1371 chipset, are much more appropriate for SkyOS. Live! cards stutter massively and can only be used the first time a user logs, not after the user logs out and logs back in. At least that's been my experience on two different machines.

Have you tried re-enabling the ISS service? I think that fixed it for me before.
