Default Thunderbolt Solutions?

I have been using the USB 2.0 adapter and while performance is acceptable, it would be nice to have a faster solution. I know you have a USB 3.0 adapter, but I am using a MacBook that has Thunderbolt, not USB 3.0. I know that PCs will start to support Light Peak (Thunderbolt) this year.

Is there a forthcoming Thunderbolt adapter?

Thanks,
Lyle

It depends on what you are trying to do.. pure Thunderbolt display will be able to daisy chain (so you don't need an adaptor).

Right now you can get Displayport splitters (thunderbolt compatible) like Matrox Dualhead2Go DP edition.. with that you will split the display and no need for drivers.

Actually, the DualHead2Go sounds like exactly what I want. It now works with Thunderbolt as well as DisplayPort!
