 There is a lot of buzz after the unveiling of Window 8 to a select few at Computex.  VR-Zone has a nice series of pictures as well as about 20 minutes of video footage from the preview event.  AnandTech focused on the ARM version and the new filesystem, while Engadget were content to delve even deeper into the ARM support offered by Win8.  ExtremeTech was more interested in the browser side, examining IE10 and the future Java and HTML5 as well as looking at the touch interface abilities.

This is pretty cool news that has found its way out with the first leaked released of Microsoft's Windows 8 prototype: integrated into the OS is support for "portable workspaces" that will allow a user to take a 16GB or larger USB thumb drive and build a bootable environment to take with them on the go.
