View tree of USB devices on Windows/Linux

Microsoft USBView allows viewing connected USB devices on Windows in a tree view. This allows viewing which ports devices are plugged in to.

An example use is computers in remote locations: verify that equipment is plugged in via USBView. USBView shows the name of chipsets and devices, even their serial numbers.
