Does the report list the flaws? I don't see them mentioned other than cost. In fact I see a lot of positive listed. If LP is made cost effective enough for cellphones etc. don't you think the pc guys will utilize it? LP is not a comm. protocol like USB3.0 is - it's is a comm infrastructure. USB3.0 or 1394 (or whatever next) can utilize it. Whatcha see as an alternative, un-named engineer?

Well I for one find it shocking that Rick could find an unnamed engineer with such bold opinions.

"None of the top three (HP, Dell, Acer) have made even a hint of support for Light Peak—these OEM's are well known supporters of USB 3.0," said the report. These OEM's have invested in 3.0 and are going to throw good money after bad.. Trouble is, if they think selling old tech in a deflationary economy is going to save them then they will go the route that the US auto industry went, (read up on the hybrid tech. history). Light peak is the right direction, only a dead man walking corp. would think that 3.0 is the way to go, just my O. ;o)

Is this a major surprise? This is a major system change. Isn't it par for the course that such a shift will take some time?

Yeah, the information in this article by Rick reinforces the hypothesis that Light Peak is yet to gain enough strength in order to overcome the popularity of USB and USB 3.0 will be the winner at least in the near future.
