I really don't see Thunderbolt as a replacement for USB. If anything, USB3.0 is ahead of the curve a bit in its established peripheral market. What I do see are new uses for it to which USB does not apply. For example, you could use it for a subsystem interconnect to move expansion cards outside of the PC chassis. Need a couple more PCIe slots? Add an external chassis via a Thunderbolt link. Larry M.
