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.

Really.... will it work on another computer? Or you will be stuck to the computer you used to create the USB image (a la Windows-license-is-tied-to-the-computer-where-you-install-it kind of way)? And then if you increase the RAM of the computer it won't boot at all because it's a diferent computer?
