It is very strange how your experience with PLoP is so dramatically different from anyone else's though.
Yep, that puzzles me too.
Maybe you tested a very old release as I find difficult to believe that you have *all* crap hardware.
Not just me, but everyone, who i got my hands on.
The version was 5.something.
I tested on (not counting duplicates):
- Intel MB with USB 1.1
- Intel MB with USB 2.0
- VIA MB with USB 1.1
- USB 2.0 expansion card on VIA MB with USB 1.1.
- VIA MB with USB 2.0
- nForce MB with USB 1.1
- USB 2.0 expansion card on nForce MB with USB 1.1
All in all, 4 different Intel chipsets, 4 different VIA chipsets and 1 nForce chipset.
After that, i didn't bother testing it on Laptops too.
btw. Had a nice trip down memory lane. Ramloaded, cabed, NTFS compressed HDD images.
Where that wild times!
