USB support isn't complete/done by far yet, sorry to burst your bubble. With the decline of optical drives and media, there's a way needed to install ReactOS (from where?!) to USB flash disk and then boot that. After all, main system usually has a single harddisk anyway that already belongs 100% to Windows 7. Windows 8 can run from USB writeable storage devices :)

Besides USB2.0 and Flash storage support there's little things like UHCI and xHCI to support, as well as various transfermodes (asynchrone for webcams?). It's nice to see things coming along one step at a time, we'll see it show up in trunk source tree sometime :)

Not gonna happen. At least for a LONG time. Not to mention, if Windows supports it...

If I understand correctly:

UHCI is used by Intel/VIA chips for USB 1.x
OHCI is used by everyone else for USB 1.x
EHCI is used in addition to UHCI/OHCI for USB 2.0
xHCI replaces all three of the above for USB 3.0 and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0

ReactOS supports OHCI and EHCI, so USB 1.x and 2.0 are supported on USB ports that are not powered by an Intel or VIA chipset.

This may or may not help clear some things up.

Actually, that's where I got that information.
