	Funny comment about the USB thing from a Linux user:

USB> I was having a conversationg with someone today who is quite involved with
the Linux in Atlanta, and we talked about USB.  While Linux probably will have
a version soon, I don't know how well it will be accepted.  Linux is still
being used on "obsolete" machines that can't handle USB on the board, and even
current boards aren't all fitted for USB.  Give it some time, and it'll be the
rage, but for now I don't think it will hit Linux with that much of a flourish.


	I've never heard the argument of the burdon of supporting ``obsolete''
hardware used to defend slow driver development compared to NetBSD.  That's
just silly.  I guess the world is how you view it.

	I'm a little more interested in USB now, though.  What, other than PCs,
supports it currently?

SA,         My girlfriend asked me which one I like better.
