100% true, but some are (or will become) absolutely convinced that Thunderbolt is better. Just like putting their music on an SSD or those who believe that different brands of RAM sound better than others.
My experience to date with Thunderbolt under Linux hasn’t been especially positive. I know that there is absolutely no benefit to it for a dedicated Roon core but I’d love for it to work as I have a really nice 6 bay Thunderbolt-only disk array that is now doing absolutely nothing. Not looking for performance here, but would like to re-purpose some hardware I already own.
