    On Ubuntu, OS X, etc, libusb can be avoided by statically linking the library against the binary. This will give it all the capabilities that it would normally depend on in libusb, compiled within the actual binary. This makes the size bigger, however it is worth it in most cases.


    as for winh0ez... this can NOT be done, because an actual driver is required to be installed for the functionality that libusb brings to the table. therefore, you windows users are stuck.

    just some facts, cuz im bored b4 school.
