USB 2.0 takes some flak

The whole thing is 'a pile of shit'

VIA CEO wants USB 2.0 killed off

Russell is not a man to mince words. At least, not on the subject of USB 2.0:

USB 2.0 is more garbage on top of garbage, and it's limited by _physical_ constraints to half a gigabit - piss in comparision to the 1394 ceiling.

I'm a USB firmware engineer, and frankly I think the whole technology is a pile of shit. It's unreliable, slow, and frought with a myriad of different ways of doing the same thing. Fortunately for me, it's expensive to maintain due to its complexity. But I try to be an ethical man, and that's why I'm so pleased that you've shared Via's negative viewpoint with the world. Keep up the 2.0-bashing. Intel can fuck themselves. They're just jealous that Apple and AMD have better busses.

So, we gather that you're not much impressed. Can we quote you on that?
