I'm curious about what sort of devices you're talking about. I use laptops
almost exclusively, and daily plug and unplug two mice, a keyboard, two
harddrives, a Palm Treo, a DVD writer, three printers, and a scanner -- most,
but not all, through a USB hub. I pretty much use USB as a cheap docking
station. I've never had problems with USB /devices/, although the Linux side
of things only started getting nice with the advent udev.
You seem to have had a different experience, though. What devices did/do you
have that require them to be plugged in and turned on before you boot Linux?
