    Doubt it.

    I expect it will be Enterprise customers only

    It's been announced since the very beginning that this feature is an Enterprise only feature.

    Bummer. Aren't there tools that lets you put any OS on a USB?

    You can probably install it to vhd - copy the vhd to usb and boot it that way.

    To brag to people that you have a pocket full of Windows! That was my excuse for Windows 7 on a flash drive and 8. I use 8 as a separate system to diagnose laptop/netbook/and possibly tablet related issues, such as a dead battery that I don't have details about since the hard drive is damaged.

    What's the smallest VHD that should be used? The one I created was 60G Gib.
