Actually, spoke to Gordon last night, and he is of the opinion that the vast majority of people will now see no problems, and he expects to be able to improve the USB again to reduce the impact on users by a significant factor, which should make it even better. So, please don't take the relatively few remaining reports of USB issues as indicative of the whole situation. It comes down to 'try your USB hardware on the board' - and given it's an industrial project, $35 to try it is not a huge outlay. In fact, probably the cehapest HW test you'll ever find!
