Hi all!

So a company based out of Cupertino mentioned using this silicon in a
revamp of their MacPro line today...

we appear to have a second version of a 20GB/s consumer connection
(latency unknown), and yet this search:

https://www.google.com/search?q=linux+thunderbolt+interconnect

does not really go anywhere cool like a github or kernel.org repo....

Any qualified folks know where this thunderbolt stuff is all heading
and are able to talk in public?

Best,

j.

p.s.

yes I did move back to .edu just in case folks were doing a double
take. And yes, (like Dr. Layton) I do still think that cloud infrastructure
as a service and HPC/HTC are still a really good idea for the right
algorithms and workloads! :-)
