    It's because of the license fee that more motherboards/devices use USB over
    Firewire

    I believe that USB is faster going between multiple devices,
    but Firewire is faster for a streaming application with no bus
    contention.
    But for the answer to what is on the motherboard, see above

    That sounds unlikely. A USB device can only talk to the host. If you
    want to get data from one device to another the host has to read it
    from one and write it to the other, the data has to be transferred
    twice. FireWire can transfer data from any device on the bus to any
    other device with only one transfer.

    Or did you mean something else?
