Mouse and Keyboard, then gamepad and other USB device.

1 for Mouse
2 for Keyboard and KB Port
1 for Snowball Microphone
1 for Webcam
1 for Driving Wheel
1 for PS3 controller when not using Blutooth
2 for Back Up Flash Drive and other Flash drive
1 for plugging in my phone to transfer files

and 1 for my pet rock

10 at least would make me feel secure

I only had three on my laptop but now since I have a new desktop with 4 3.0's and 4 2.0's (with one being one of those charge while off abilities) I've wondered how I survived :p

I can live with 3, but I'm on a laptop, so I don't have to worry about one for mouse or keyboard or wifi adapter

For me, the more the better, but an absolute minimum of 6. I have a crapton of USB devices. Six are always plugged in:

Mouse
Keyboard
Gamepad
Microphone (XLR mic via USB adapter)
Card reader
Hub, which at any given time may have plugged into it:

GoPro
Video camera (1080p non-GoPro)
Flash drives x2
Cellphone
External Blu-ray drive (uses 2 ports)
Drawing tablet

There might be more I forgot, but yeah, the more USB, the better.
