    Default Microsoft to Sell Windows 7 on USB Drives

    According to a source which was not revealed by CNET, Microsoft could end up selling Windows 7 on a USB drive, whereas right now the only way that a user can obtain a retail copy (legally) of Windows 7 is via retail or by download. This would be a good move for Microsoft as they had announced that any edition of Windows 7 will be able to run on a netbook; however, the trick would be getting it installed.

    Definitely these USB drives will be readonly...
    Microsoft is so innovative.
