Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Linux is the first operating system to offer support for USB 3.0 devices, as can be read on The Geekess blog. If all goes according to plan, Linux will support USB 3.0 in September 2009. The development of this driver has taken a year and a half and the source is available on this page.

USB 3.0, whose specifications were published about seven months ago, promises, among other features: transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps and a new interface called xHCI developed by Intel.
