"But, if I buy a Logitech mouse or keyboard, or a SanDisk USB drive, or some other USB 2.0 "bus powered" device that is properly made and meets the USB 2.0 spec (like a Western Digital 120GB drive), and they *DON'T* work under Linux... that's a *very bad* thing."
If I understand corectly, kernel disables out-of-spec devices.So, how
can that WD 120GB drive, or any other properly made, by-the-specs, device
not work under Linux?
IMHO, this is a GoodThing[tm].
Why would Linux support badly made hardware?
