Internet & Networking Audio and Video professionals swear by it, but if Microsoft sticks with its plans, Firewire may not be supported in Windows 8. This is following an industry trend with, for example, Apple itself phasing out firewire support in recent years.

Nothing in the leaked slides says that. FTA: "Windows 8 will provide a better support for USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 3.0 + HS – and there are no indications of Firewire 1394 meaning that we might wave goodbye to this port". That is, this blogger who wrote about the leaked slides thinks that, because Firewire was not mentioned, it might not be supported - which is a huge, crazy leap to make.
