While I do agree that USB is NOT a be-all do-all, like some proponents, I do
not think is a is *Botch* either.

Any x86 style computer CAN have a usb port, and there are kits for other
platforms as well [I integrated a USB sub-system with and embedded ARM-7
system last year], so I am confused about your stantement that not of the
computers you have *CAN* have usb ports.

I also don't understand youstatement that it is not a bus.....
