          So business as usual. If you don't believe me, do a dive into the USB driver code someday. The number of workarounds for nonstandard, partly broken, and totally broken vendor USB implementations is staggering. This doesn't even touch on all the hardware broken at the electrical level before you even get to needing a driver.
