Microsoft considers offering Windows 7 in thumb drives

Windows 7 on a thumb drive? Yes please! Microsoft is still considering whether they will push through with it though.USBDrive6

With the massive appeal netbooks are garnering these days, it would be a good move for Microsoft to also offer their latest OS, Windows 7, on a thumb drive.

It’s been tested already that Windows 7 runs well in netbooks but the only way to upgrade the usual Windows XP it comes with is through an external optical drive, external hard disk, or download the installer in a separate partition and run it from there.

I’m sure netbook owners will be more open to upgrade to Windows 7 if they can easily upgrade their existing OS without shelling out for additional devices and the thumb drive is a good solution.
