As far as I am aware they will basically treat each other as USB hard drives or network creations. Not sure of the exact way they look at each other. Actually, I think they recognize they are hooked up to each other as in my network locations my Server Gaming computer recognizes itself.

Will they charge each other? Or is it like the ethernet deal where you can cross 2 wires for a network connection. Or maybe there'll be a target disk mode like firewire later down the line. The possibilities are endless.

with ethernet you don't need to cross the wires

it works with any cable  (starting in like before 2010 ish )

 

 

i wonder with USB C if it will be able to recognize automatically and adjust the settings accordingly.

Auto-MDIX is what allows two computers to be connected via a regular ethernet cable instead of requiring a crossover ethernet cable. Fairly sure it was around before 2010ish, though I can't find really anything on when it was released/started being implemented.

I thought you had to do this:

So in order for that to happen they must have made the Tx and Rx pins generic... seems like I'm a little behind.

USB is host to device, not peer to peer. I don't think you can view any file systems or anything
