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.

Most all of the recent Macs can boot from a USB drive. In addition the newer machines come with an SD Card port. This makes it a snap to carry an SD card with a complete version of the OS and plenty of space for files and data. It also makes a debugging device, although I rarely need it for that purpose. Building a bootable system on an SD card is trivial. A class 10 SD card makes a pretty decent system "disk". The biggest problem I have is keeping track of SD card because it's so small.
