Windows 8 Update- USB 3.0

In Windows 8 Microsoft has promised USB 3.0 support. This is about the fastest file transfer in the market today. Also if you are feeling scared about the fact that you don't even know what USB 3.0 is then you don't need to worry. Windows 8 has support for USB 2.0 as well. Here is more from Engadget-
No points for calling this one, but Microsoft confirmed today that Windows 8 will indeed boast support for the USB 3.0 specification, and "robust" support at that. That includes not just the higher transfer speeds you'd expect, but the promise of better battery life thanks to the improved power management measures the specification allows. Naturally, Microsoft will also continue to support all of your less speedy USB devices, and says that it's actually created a brand new Microsoft USB Test Tool (or MUTT) to ensure everything works without a hitch -- it's described as "1,000 devices on a USB thumb drive." Head on past the break for a quick demo video.
