I'm one of those folks waiting for the next mac pro update. But I read in the news today about the next update of Firewire, 4x faster than FW800, which should be available next year. And USB 3, 10x faster than USB 2.0 (and 1.5x faster than FW3200) should also be released at some point next year. I read that FW3200 will use the same connector as FW800, but my understanding is that USB3 is optical so is completely different from the 2.0 specification. So what do folks think as to the compatibility or expandability-to-compatibility likelihood of the next Mac Pro? Is it as simple as a PCI card? I know nothing about PCI stuff, so have no idea if this is possible, or what the likely expansion/compatibility route would be. Any ideas? I have no plans on waiting for those specifications and hardware to come out before I buy a Mac Pro (unless they're not updated before that), but I would like the machine to be compatible with hardware for the next 5+ years that I plan on having that computer (again, I also know it's impossible to plan for everything). Oh, and I have absolutely no interest in starting yet another flame war between "Apple Can Do Nothing Wrong" and "Apple's Non-Update of the Mac Pro is the Worst Thing Since the Holocaust," so please don't start fighting on this thread.
