What's wrong with USB-B? I consider both Mini and Micro as not 
mechanically reliable, i.e. I fear that the cable will unplug itself or 
the mechanical strain will break the leads in the plug (I have too many 
Mini and Micro cables that suffer from this) or rip off the SMD pins from 
the copper traces (also very common in my experience). I don't want to 
pull out a fully equipped pdp8 of the rack and open it just to reinsert 
the cable. ;-)
