If you like to avoid this problem, try to educate the Lunix kernel maintainers
not to stay living in the past....

USB indeed is a sore point on Linux as USB devices get a new ID everytime they
are replugged. If you like to use USB in a more user friendly way, you still
have the choice to use something different then Linux.

Usability only depends on the kernel quality.
If you have problems on Linux, try Solaris, FreeBSD BeOS/Zeta or even MS-WIN
Linux is the only OS around that still suffers from unfixed bugs from the last
millenium when looking at the SCSI transport.
