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.

Forgive me for my ignorance, but is Robert the only person working on this OS? If so, not sure I would want to invest my money or depend on an OS written by one person.

"SkyOS gets USB support" - wow!!!

Sorry don't mean to be negative, but are people really paying for this??? come on!!!!

There is a lot of crappy software out there where you have to pay more than 30$ to get a full version.
30$ is really no big deal, spend a good night out in a club and you could loose even more.

You are obviously not someone who would even be willing to donate to some project just because you like it or you want to support the developper(s).

and yes, he is the only one doing core developper. The payed beta program is one reason for him not to loose interest in it.

@tdehoog: how much costs a usb to ps2 converter, 1$? wow, that's a big effort to make...
It's perfectly possible to test SkyOS without usb support.
The vmware hardware is supported to give the people that do have problems with hardware the possibility to test everything in skyos.
