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.

Next we'll see searching actually works, so the tireless efforts of the harddrive crunching indexer service will be put to good use, but will they make an effort in search? or just keep whining that google has a search monopoly which obviously prevents Microsoft doing anything useful with their shitty os. Doubt springs to mind.

In Windows 8, Google will index your HDD so that you can search your files at google.com =p

The Windows Vista/Win7 search works great, but let me guess, you haven't used Windows since Windows 2, but that's what you heard.

I have used it and it sucks as much as Apple's own implementation, both suck and I am an Apple Fan lol.
