Ditto. It seems like newer motherboards are removing them. I had to use an USB mouse since my friend and I couldn't get any USB to PS/2 adapters to work correctly (mouse pauses and then sometimes locks up randomly in both Windows XP Pro. SP3 and Ubuntu liveCD) with a mouse on my three years old EVGA X58 SLI (132-BL-E758; BIOS date 5/11/2010; v6.00 PG; release number IX58SZ64) motherboard. :( Also, I still use old KVMs from Y2K (unrelated to the issue).

There *ARE* more homicides with "hand and other", or blunt weapons, or knives (or, not and) than with rifles of all types, including so-called Assault Weapons (Assault Rifles are not freely available in the USA); it's the people intent of defending their meth territory or knocking over a C-store (as examples) that are the bulk of the violence and those people won't generally want to shell out $1500+ for a Bushmaster and then try to figure out how to carry it concealed to the site of the intended crime. They get a pistol and put it in their pocket. Guess what things like capacity laws do? Encourage the production and sale of small concealable pistols just big enough to be easily concealed and still carry 10 in the mag and one in the pipe. Talk about an unintended consequence.
