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 guess it's a bit underwhelming to see such run-of-the-mill features implemented and lauded as exciting, especially when they'll require 16GB of space and would only be available to "enterprise" customers.

Im not sure why the winruomors site think that booting from USB would somehow improve documentation compatiblility though. That seems like a bit of a stretch.
