The SuperSpeed USB Developer Conference takes place these days in Tokyo, Japan. At the conference, Fred Bhesania, Program Manager. Windows Device Experience Group talked about Windows 7 and the USB 3.0.
Microsoft has began to add support for USB since to Windows since Windows 98. At that time, the system only allowed 3 devices to plug-in while now the number is 15. When it comes to Windows Vista, the percent of USB usage has reached 94%. And most of the USB devices support plug-and-play. That’s to say, once you plug it in, you can use it without having any extra drivers installed.
And with USB 3.0, Windows 7 users will find it much easier to manage devices. In addition, power management, reliability, and strengthen efforts to support virtualization will bring you a smarter USB 3.0. For the Drivers, Windows 7 will push them through Windows Update.
