    A rather significant feature shipping with Windows 8 is "Windows to Go" - as it sounds, a portable Windows 8 install. Much like ReadyBoost, Microsoft isn't releasing this feature without some standards, so for a portable drive to be validated, it must first meet the company's specifications. While speed is important, more so is the ability to create all of the required partitions, something that many thumb drives are incapable of.
