Microsoft shows off new "Windows to Go" in Windows 8 Enterprise
Posted on Apr 20 2012 03:08 AM by xper in Software

Microsoft yesterday laid out the exclusive features of Windows 8 Enterprise, one of three editions of the upcoming OS and the only one limited to corporate customers.

Windows 8 Enterprise will be available only to businesses that have signed Software Assurance deals with Microsoft. Software Assurance is a kind of software insurance that lets firms upgrade to every new version of a specific product released during the life of the agreement.

Software Assurance fees typically run 23 to 29 percent of a desktop product's license price for each year of coverage.

In a Wednesday blog post, Erwin Visser, a senior director for Windows, outlined the features that will be limited to Windows 8 Enterprise, including the new "Windows to Go," which lets IT administrators burn an image of an in-house PC to a USB thumb drive.

Windows to Go, which Microsoft unveiled last September, will run on PCs or other devices powered by Windows 7 or Windows 8.
