I'm using Linux KVM (virsh) and it officially supports USB 1.0. Are there other virtualization tools (free) that would allow my Windows VM to run USB 2.0?

I believe VirtualBox supports USB 2.0

Can you provide a link to back this up? – Simon Sheehan Dec 3 '11 at 21:33 shows that the Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack is required to support it – shf301 Dec 3 '11 at 22:23
its also in the manual. chapter 3. I'd paste it, but i'm using a crashy browser ;p – Journeyman Geek Dec 3 '11 at 22:30
It does, but I had to use Oracle's proprietary version. Then you have to download an extension pack and enable USB 2.0 in the settings. Ugh. – m33lky Dec 4 '11 at 5:36

Vmware does:

VMware Workstation 6, 7, and 8, VMware Player 2, 3, and 4, and VMware ACE 2 include a virtual EHCI controller that allows guests to fully use USB 2.0 devices.
