Here's a great follow up story on that subject-
For Thunderbolt and Lightning, USB-C is very, very frightening
USB-C is backed by Intel and consortium of other vendors that sides with USB. Reason why SCSI and Firewire didn't fare so well because Intel does not back the 2 tech and it costs more for vendors to use.
There are already smartphones coming out with USB-C by 3rd quarter this year so I can imagine that Apple went ahead and put out USB-C 1st so the Macbook would have a longer shelf life vs all the other Ultrabooks out there that still have USB 2.0
If I am buying new ext storage I would look for USB-C enclosure. Thunderbolt was nice and expensive.
I do have Thunderbolt devices and I hated how it is implemented on the windows side. There are lots of incompatibility issues due to the security scheme.
