I think Intel is still experimenting with a technology their not sure of. Intel used Apple as a trial partner to test their new technology for an year on Mac platform this year in Windows. Time will tell what will happen to this Thunderbolt interface, but i also dont see this taking off due to cost and efficiency and the way this works (cables with chips??). Of coz i love what intel is trying to achieve here but there should be some other firm alternative. Thunderbolt vanish just like a thunderbolt while destroying everything in its way...LOl.
