Comment USB is a trainwreck (Score 1) 286

After the death of xp - some pretty hi-end synth/sequencer gear was bricked due to lack of USB drivers on a modern OS.

USB was over-engineered and chosen over firewire by idiots. The ony good to come out of it is phone charger standardization - except some chargers are nonstandard voltage with interchangeable plugs, resulting in ignorant USB users who then blame the exploding 4v device instead of their 6v+ charger and their own stupidity..

If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.
