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.

BartPE already offered this feature with XP.

Of course, being third party, it would never be condoned by MS, never the less, it was impressive. I believe they based it on the windows installation environment. Never the less, I was surprised when I was able to install and run all the usual windows applications off of a "windows live CD" without any trouble at all.

I don't know if BartPE was able to do windows vista or 7 because of the new DRM in those kernels.
