I believe people here firmly overestimate the importance and success of TB. Even within the Mac world its adoption rate isn't exploding, on the PC side it is virtually non-existant. There are just a handful of TB mobos with the older 1155 socket on the market while there are zero for Intel's most recent socket 2011 and x79 chipset with apparently no plans or attempts by the mobo manufacturers to implement it. For the average consumer, USB3 is more than enough and substantially cheaper. For the enterprise and server market PCIe is and will be the way to go. Leaves the video crowd, on the mac side, with certain mac models.
It's a niche connector within a niche within a niche - just like FW800. I doubt that'll change, and I doubt Intel sees that much different in the long-run.
