As many as possible. Probably around 50 so I won't need to worry about having to little USB ports. But with 50 of them there won't be much room for other things on the back of the computer.

Most USB hubs will only juice up a certain number of devices anyway, due to power limitations. You wouldn't want to put 50 devices on a single hub, because that would place the hub under pressure both speed-wise and leccy-wise. 4 per hub is a good number. If you need more ports, get another hub (internal or external). They're cheap enough...

I don't even believe built-in USB ports are necessary, to be honest. You can get firewire (IEEE1394) to USB cables. I'd be extremely happy with 4 IEEE1394 ports instead of 4 USB ports, because 1394 is far more versatile. It can emulate ethernet too :)

I think 4 USB ports is enough.

I think around 7 for normal computers would be enough. For my dream computer I would take around 40 USB ports.

Right now, I'm using 8 USB ports. At the place I work at, we're coming out with computers that have 10 USB ports built in. So I'm gonna go with 10.

Well I got 6 USB ports on my desktop PC - 2 in the front and 4 in the back.

I think an awesome number would 100 USB Ports. Then, you can never complain with not having an extra USB Port. Just saying!
