Windows "Windows 8 build 7850.0.winmain_win8m1.100922-1508 contains a number of references to a brand new feature in Windows: Portable Workspaces. Microsoft will allow Enterprise customers to create USB storage driven copies of Windows. 'Portable Workspace is a Windows feature that allows you to run Windows from a USB storage device', notes Microsoft in its description of the feature inside Windows 8." So, yeah, something we've been waiting for in Windows since, well, forever. Also, push notifications, a screenshot tool and a new webcam application have been discovered as well.

I think it's probably going to use the bootable USB stack option from Windows Embedded 7.

I use the Windows 7 embedded version for a couple of utilities and some easy data recovery stuff... it moves from one piece of hardware to another pretty smoothly, although there are a few reboots or BSODs when moving from one chipset to another... intel to nvidia, etc... the basic drivers are mostly there and so long as windows has drivers for your NIC, windows update usually grabs the rest. I usually only have to install drivers manually for weird stuff, mostly different raid controllers.
