    ADB is a tool you can use to pull diagnostic information to your device or to perform other debugging commands.

    XDA developers has good documentation on how to get it to work.

    Windows:
    [GUIDE] ADB, Fastboot, and Nandroid for Noobs - xda-developers

    Drivers only:
    Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!

    You can also use Droid Explorer for an automatic install and a Windows explorer-like interface

    Mac:
    [HOW-TO] ADB for Dummies(How-To Learner's Guide) - xda-developers

    Linux:
    [HOW-TO]Set up Android SDK/ADB/Fastboot on Ubuntu Linux - xda-developers

    Things you need:

    Android SDK - Download
    PC
    male mini-USB to male USB Cable that comes in the box

    Factory reset-> becareful, I used this because my MID was stuck at android startup but could be connected via ADB. Please confirm this, Xaueious, as I don't remember it well, it was a desperate move when I did it.
    Code:
    adb shell
    #wipe data

    So I saw many posts from people asking for these drivers. So I extracted them from the android sdk and posted them here.
    Have fun with adb shell :)). Which I probably should post somewhere too.
