Do you ever find yourself in an argument with fellow enthusiasts against how bad and slow Linux hardware support is? Well fret no more, you now have a new point to bring up. Linux drivers for USB 3.0 have been created, before the first USB 3.0 controllers are being mass produced. The drivers, under Sarah Sharp's name, will soon be added to the Linux kernel code, and will be officially supported sometime around September, which would probably make Linux the first operating system with official USB 3.0 support. Until then, we'll just have to make do with USB 2.0 and one-tenth the speed.
