Less PS/2, more USB

While looking across the latest stack of nVidia nForce 500 series motherboards that support AMD’s AM2, I was surprised to see all of them featuring PS/2 ports. Isn’t this about time this twenty year old port got deprecated in favour of USB?

Most of the motherboards only have four USB ports. If two are taken up by the keyboard and mouse, then that only leaves two others. I currently use eight USB ports in total, and as my Dell only has five on the back I need a four port hub, which is messy and unnecessary. I see no reason why the extra USB ports couldn’t be provided. It’s certainly not space, there’s plenty of room left on the back, and it’s definatly possible at very little cost, so why don’t we have it? I’d like to see is a move forwards towards providing ten USB ports as standard.

All this Link Boost, King of Ping, Dual Net and Media Shield crap isn’t what I want. I just a USB controller that provides ten ports out of the box! Not much to ask for is it?
