> I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as USB Type-C, or as people have recently taken to calling it, USB-C, is in fact, USB 2 or USB 3. USB-C is not a system unto itself, but rather a connector of the multi-functional data interface made useful by USB 2, USB 3, USB Power Delivery, Audio Accessory, Debug Accessory, HDMI, DisplayPort, MHL, Thunderbolt, and vital physical layer components comprising a full system as defined by USB-IF.

> Many computer users run a version of the USB every day. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of USB which is widely used today is often called "USB-C", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically USB 2 or USB 3, developed by the USB-IF. There really is a USB-C, and these people are using it, but it is just a connector to the system they use.

@niconiconi or as I've taken to calling it, USB + C
