    In the beginning, there was USB 1.1, with the "low speed" and "full speed" devices (at 1 Mbps and 12 Mbps, respectively). Then USB 2.0 came along with "high speed" devices that ran at 480 Mbps. Now the new USB 3.0 bus specification defines "SuperSpeed" devices that run at 5 Gbps (5,120 Mbps).

    Now that the bus specification is public, I can finally talk about the code I've been developing at work. I've been writing a Linux driver for xHCI (the new USB 3.0 host controller), and changing the Linux kernel stack to support USB 3.0 devices. On November 17th, I got to demo my work at the world's first USB 3.0 "SuperSpeed" Developers Conference.
