I saw a reference to this recently in a progress report, and wondered if USB audio is now feasible, and if not, when is it likely to be?
Apart from the fact that this is how I listen to music (in Linux) it does seem that the BFS is an excellent way to maintain a quickly searchable database of digital music without incurring the overhead and limitations of music playing applications.
BTW, I am hugely impressed with all the advances in Haiku recently. I now have 64 bit Haiku installed on one of my laptops, and whilst it is not yet perfect, web browsing works well most of the time, and Libre0ffice is a huge step forward. A bit more stability, a few more applications and Haiku will be able to serve the needs of most non-business computer users.
I have started making small monthly payments to the fund to show my appreciation.
