A leaked Windows 8 build reveals a new feature that lets you run your OS from a USB stick.

An early build of Windows 8 has leaked onto the Internet, revealing a new feature called the ‘Portable Workspace’. This gives users the option of creating a copy of their operating system on a USB storage device, meaning you can then run it from whichever PC you slot the USB into.

Storing the workspace requires at least a 16GB USB stick, as it has to have enough space to hold a full installation. You can then carry your personal Windows OS around with you and boot it up on different PCs.
