Linux Hardware, Past, Present, and Future.

Hardware

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.

Seriously, it's dead, use it as a video interconnect and don't worry about anything else.

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.
