    This was a coin toss between here and the virtualization forum, but I didn't want to hear from the windows folks. I currently use VB 4.3.10 and its smooth as can be. I am hesitant to upgrade when its running so well, but I thought I would ask while I consider the change. The claim is that USB support has been improved and I am wondering if they are handling USB3 properly yeto_Oo_O That is a biggie for me because true 3 support has not been there. Not a deal breaker, just a major disappointment because the speeds are so much slower.

    fyi -- both the host OS and all VM's are linux (no windows anywhere).

    So, any feedback on 4.3.16 while utilizing Linux would be appreciated.

    I'm on 4.3.16 and have no complaints. But, being paranoid, I don't enable USB.
