FreeBSD FreeBSD is getting support for USB 3.0. "Commit initial version of new XHCI driver which was written from scratch. This driver adds support for USB3.0 devices. The XHCI interface is also backwards compatible to USB2.0 and USB1.0 and will eventually replace the OHCI/UHCI and EHCI drivers."

Based on the other projects this guy seems to have worked, http://www.selasky.org/hans_petter/index.html, he doesn't look like a rookie to me...

Hans is responsible for the current new USB stack in FreeBSD and for some other projects like cuse4bsd etc. Most people just don't think before opening their mouth.

I guess it is more an issue of licensing, which, from my experience, happens to get more attention and respect in the FLOSS community.
