once intel supports it.
why? because all the cheap OEM and prebuilt systems as well as intel atom based nettops will need it before the mass consumer base cares - and once THEY care, it'll be a sudden boom in interest.
i use USB 3.0 already - my USB 2.0 device are upto 1/3 faster when using it. seriously.
as for front ports, its easy to just use a hub. sit it on top of the PC, near your monitor, wherever - its not THAT inconvenient.
