Linux will have support for USB 3.0 before any other system


We all expect to see the first products compatible with USB 3.0 by the end of this year or the beginning of next, but precisely until then, neither Apple nor Microsoft will have official support for one of the most important technologies that will accompany us in the coming years in peripherals and storage. of all kinds such as USB 3.0 or “Super Speed” USB.

This standard, which will multiply by ten the current USB 2.0 transfer capacity, will find official support first in Linux. Many of you will wonder why it is so important that the operating system is compatible before any of us can buy a hard drive with this connection standard. It is important because things do not develop on their own and testing with real operating systems will be a fundamental step for the development of compatible peripherals and also things require time to adapt to avoid possible problems.

Until Microsoft and Apple release Windows 7 and Snow Leopard, the only safe and stable platform to test USB 3.0 will be Linux operating systems.
