i just had an instance of why i love OS X so much. i bought a new Netcomm NB6Plus4W wireless router a while ago which includes a USB interface for computers that dont have an ethernet port (must be pretty old computers lol). it says in the manual that Vista does not support it and XP needs drivers. curiously, i just tried plugging in a USB cable from the router to my MBP to see what will happen. straight away a window popped up saying a new network interface has been found and i clicked open Network preferences and then clicked connect. straight away i was on the internets! i mean no drivers needed (not that there is any for this router anyway) and instantly online! how does OS X handle hardware drivers so well? i mean cameras, most popular phones, printers and now something as obscure as a USB network interface on a router. and this router is mainly targeted at Windows users and the USB feature still doesnt work in Vista and needs drivers to be installed in XP .
