If we stick to audio then I would say that for permanent studio setups using desktop/server computers, yes, Thunderbolt is useless. For laptop users? Mostly yes.
But for laptop computing. For now, it's miles ahead of anything already, with space to expand in the future.
There are already products offering 64/64 audio I/O for laptops. I am sure there are people that want or need more I/O than that for their laptops but wouldn't you agree that it is a rather niche market and that most laptop users really don't need more than 64/64 I/O?
That's what's exciting people, not the idea that Laptop owners are somehow better than desktop owners.
You lost me there. Who said anything about anyone being better than anyone else?
Besides, all this extra horsepower and technology means that even poorer and poorer performances can be fixed.
It isn't extra horsepower. It is just extending an existing bus outside of the computer.
