Retail security, advertising, harder to lose, easy to ship, I guess.

I get it, flash is more expensive. Charge $3 extra for the flash version. Otherwise MS loses money by locking out customers.

I don't see how that argues against flash drives.

Option 1: Consumer sees Win7 read-only flash drive in store. Plugs it in.

Option 2: Consumer, who better hope he or she has a high speed...

This is good news, considering Apple has been doing this for years (making Macs have lower TCO for multiple computers over multiple upgrades)

USB drives have poor sequential speeds, but better random access in certain conditions. So in general, except for very tiny files, HDDs are much faster.

From what I've read though, ReadyBoost...

Not to deflate the love bubble here, but this sort of thing is pretty standard for cheap peripherals. It cost them more to ship broken crap around that almost definitely can't be repaired and to put...

XP installation via USB is a PITA. Vista and 7 are dead easy. It's a controller driver issue. But 4gb isn't that big anymore. It would only cost a few bucks.

I don't think magnets will affect a thumb drive at all. The only reason they affect floppies and HDDs are because the bits are stored by magnetic 'switches'. Flash drives work entirely different.

I had a thumb drive similar to that design, and I have to say - they suck. Very fragile, fit loosely into the USB slot, and easy to lose. Mine ended up cracked in the center within a few months.

I don't think dropping the price of 7 Home Premium (the consumer version) by $10 is going to keep the good feelings. SL and 7 are about equivalents in their OS families. SL is much more than a...
