comment Disable “HI-SPEED USB Device Attached To non-HI-SPEED Hub” message
I do indeed have Tweak UI, but disabling balloon tips is not a desirable solution. Although I have heard those who disparage them, I actually like balloon tips quite a bit. They're much less intrusive than modal message boxes and less likely to get accidentally dismissed if I happen to typing <kbd>Enter</kbd> or <kbd>Space</kbd> when it pops up. (I have accidentally dismissed message boxes before seeing them more than once this way). Besides, just as disabling notification of any USB errors would take away information I might need to see, so would disabling balloons globally.

At the bottom of my question, I mentioned this. It is indeed not a perfect solution. I don't want to throw the baby out with the bath water. I'm not even sure why this option is here. Should we also have the option to disable notification of harddrive errors, I wonder? Is our desire not to be annoyed more important than our data?
