The NetBSD & FreeBSD USB developers. For being on the Linux USB list
and offering suggestions and sharing implementation experiences.
+Additional thanks to the following companies and people for donations
+of hardware, support, time and development (this is from the original
+THANKS file in Inaky's driver):
+ The following corporations have helped us in the development
+of Linux USB / UUSBD:
+ - USAR Systems provided us with one of their excellent USB
+ Evaluation Kits. It allows us to test the Linux-USB driver
+ for compilance with the latest USB specification. USAR
+ Systems recognized the importance of an up-to-date open
+ Operating System and supports this project with
+ Hardware. Thanks!.
+ - Thanks to Intel Corporation for their precious help.
+ - We teamed up with Cherry to make Linux the first OS with
+ built-in USB support. Cherry is one of the biggest keyboard
+ makers in the world.
+ - CMD Technology, Inc. sponsored us kindly donating a CSA-6700
+ PCI-to-USB Controller Board to test the OHCI implementation.
+ - Due to their support to us, Keytronic can be sure that they
+ will sell keyboards to some of the 3 million (at least)
+ Linux users.
+ - Many thanks to ing büro h doran [http://www.ibhdoran.com]!
+ It was almost imposible to get a PC backplate USB connector
+ for the motherboard here at Europe (mine, home-made, was
+ quite lowsy :). Now I know where to adquire nice USB stuff!
+ - Genius Germany donated a USB mouse to test the mouse boot
+ protocol. They've also donated a F-23 digital joystick and a
+ NetMouse Pro. Thanks!
+ - AVM GmbH Berlin is supporting the development of the Linux
+ USB driver for the AVM ISDN Controller B1 USB. AVM is a
+ leading manufacturer for active and passive ISDN Controllers
+ and CAPI 2.0-based software. The active design of the AVM B1
+ is open for all OS platforms, including Linux.
+ - Thanks to Y-E Data, Inc. for donating their FlashBuster-U
+ USB Floppy Disk Drive, so we could test the bulk transfer
+ - Many thanks to Logitech for contributing a three axis USB
+ Logitech designs, manufactures and markets
+ Human Interface Devices, having a long history and
+ experience in making devices such as keyboards, mice,
+ trackballs, cameras, loudspeakers and control devices for
+ gaming and professional use.
+ Being a recognized vendor and seller for all these devices,
+ they have donated USB mice, a joystick and a scanner, as a
+ way to acknowledge the importance of Linux and to allow
+ Logitech customers to enjoy support in their favorite
+ operating systems and all Linux users to use Logitech and
+ other USB hardware.
+ Logitech is official sponsor of the Linux Conference on
+ Feb. 11th 1999 in Vienna, where we'll will present the
+ current state of the Linux USB effort.
+ - CATC has provided means to uncover dark corners of the UHCI
+ inner workings with a USB Inspector.
+ - Thanks to Entrega for providing PCI to USB cards, hubs and
+ converter products for development.
+ And thanks go to (hey! in no particular order :)
+ - Oren Tirosh <email@example.com>, for standing so patiently
+ all my doubts'bout USB and giving lots of cool ideas.
+ - Jochen Karrer <firstname.lastname@example.org>, for
+ pointing out mortal bugs and giving advice.
+ - Edmund Humemberger <email@example.com>, for it's great work on
+ public relationships and general management stuff for the
+ Linux-USB effort.
+ - Alberto Menegazzi <firstname.lastname@example.org> is starting the
+ documentation for the UUSBD. Go for it!
+ - Ric Klaren <email@example.com> for doing nice
+ introductory documents (compiting with Alberto's :).
+ - Christian Groessler <firstname.lastname@example.org>, for it's help on those
+ itchy bits ... :)
+ - Paul MacKerras for polishing OHCI and pushing me harder for
+ the iMac support, giving improvements and enhancements.
+ - Fernando Herrera <email@example.com> has taken
+ charge of composing, maintaining and feeding the
+ long-awaited, unique and marvelous UUSBD FAQ! Tadaaaa!!!
+ - Rasca Gmelch <firstname.lastname@example.org> has revived the raw driver and
+ pointed bugs, as well as started the uusbd-utils package.
+ - Peter Dettori <email@example.com> is unconvering bugs like
