Here's some thoughts about some hardware I was going to use, hardware I use daily, and hardware I'll probably use someday in the future.

Thunderbolt is dead, long live Thunderbolt.

Ok, some more explanation is probably in order...

Back in October of 2012, after a meeting with some very smart Intel engineers, I ended up the proud owner of a machine with Thunderbolt support, some hard disks with Thunderbolt interfaces, and most importantly, access to the super-secret Thunderbolt specification on how to make this whole thing work properly on Linux. I also had a MacBook Pro with a Thunderbolt interface which is what I really wanted to get working.
