That is really sad. I am sort of forced to use USB devices on a
daily basis, Luckily, very few of them involve FreeBSD, which is why I
do not exhibit such a negative attitude, except of course when I do
attempt to plug one in a FreeBSD machine with negative results. I do
not know what is more pathetic; the fact that so many devices fail to
operate correctly -- if at all --, or the willingness of the FreeBSD
community to accept it as the norm.
