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.

Yea, at less than 50MB for a basic WinXP system (MineField is -not- installed ;) ), it do a great combo on a UBCD (ultimate boot cd). You can have both XP and and Linux on the SAME cd with hundreds of DOS floppy utilities.

Windows have its place in a system rescue toolkit. So does Linux and DOS.
