An anonymous reader writes with an excerpt from Neowin.net
"Sarah Sharp, a self-styled 'geekess' and Linux developer at Intel's Open Source Technology Center who has recently been working on the Linux USB subsystem, announced on her blog that support of USB 3.0 will soon be integrated into the Linux kernel. This makes Linux the first operating system to support the standard. If you can't wait and have the expertise necessary, she includes instructions on how to get USB 3.0 support in Linux now."
Here's Sharp's post.

That seems to be a first, usually the server starts going down because the load is to much.

That's not what I meant, I meant that it seems to be the first time a site didn't go down because it was /. which is unusal in itself.

There are far to many variations of linux to follow them all, if you find news that you think is worthy of the front page, feel free to submit it. Until Linux commands a large portion of consumer use, you wont see it hitting major news publications.
