USB 2.0 was released barely ten years ago and you already demand that they support it.

People are so impatient these days.

I personally believe that Amiga OS 4.0 are unable to do so because, uh, some Amiga's out there in our nation don't have USB ports and, uh, I believe that our, uh, operating systems like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and, I believe that they should, our USB 2.0 over here in the U.S. should help Microsoft., uh, or, uh, should help Hyperion and should help the Amiga's and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future, for our children.

Erm, have I been working too hard this afternoon because I didn't follow that at all? I guess you were talking about equality of technological opportunity towards the ends which is important, but this has very little to do with the Amiga. Could you clarify please?

My A1200 had USB support before the subway controller met an untimely end so back to old school methods of transferring data; anyone tried to buy 720kb floppies these days? Even when you do get some Windows XP no longer allows you to format the damn things.

he-he! True, but a USB2 driver will be more likely for AOS4.x than an official Windows driver for NT 4 or 95. so that's sorta of a victory..

The upcoming x1000 has no less than 10 USB2 ports, so I'm guessing they'll be a usb2 stack/driver out soon.

Yeah, there'll be a USB 2.0 upgrade alright. It's called "buy the X1000 at an exorbitant price" and "buy another copy of AOS4" that only runs on the X1000 for another exorbitant amount.
