Confirm comment report request

I am a bit bewildered by the USB comments. The comment "onboard USB still doesn't work" in the article is grossly misleading. It was never meant to work in production machines nor will it ever work. Why should it? The Iyonix has fully working USB support provided by a PCI card. "still doesn't work" implies that it is expected to work at some stage, which is nonsense. Neither has anyone promised onboard USB would ever work, nor would anyone need it, nor do I know of anyone having expressed the wish of it working. Why does it matter whether the USB facilities are provided by the onboard chip or by a card? So, the sentence "onboard USB still doesn't work" is about as sensible as complaining that "there still is no onboard coffee machine", which is equally true, but equally pointless.
