win8portableworkspace2 | Windows 8 Will Run From a USB Drive via Portable Workspace

We were hearing a lot rumors and looking at number of image leaks from the upcoming highly anticipated Microsoft Windows 8 for quite some time. We have already shed light on the integration of the built-in PDF reading capabilities in Windows 8 as well as the use of ribbon based user interface to be employed now system-wide (if early Windows 8 builds are any indication). But after the Windows 8 has leaked on the Internet there is a flurry of information coming our way about all kinds of new features that MS is planning to bake in the stable builds of the Windows 8.

Now it has been reported that Windows 8 build 7850.0.winmain_win8m1.100922-1508 actually hints at an interesting new feature in the Windows 8 called Portable Workspace that will allows the Windows Enterprise customers to install and run the OS from USB drive. It has been discovered that this requires a flash drive with at least 16GB of space to enable this option. Of course, we could already install and run the Windows 7 (& earlier OS) from the USB drive, but that required third party tools to do so. It is nice to see Microsoft being proactive to listening to the needs of the end-users and integrating these kind of convenient features right with in the OS.

We will keep you posted on any new discoveries on the Windows 8 front…
