    It's a minimal difference when you have a fast network, and you have tons of HDD space to waste, especially when you want to keep the install media over time. I have 479 install medias, many of them are Linux, many of them are older smaller Windows, some of them are just WinPE or alike.

    But even a small bunch of 100 ISOs of modern windows would mean 200/250GB of difference.

    That's not a plus at all for recent windows. You "waste" your time anyway once a month. The last OS worth having an updated install media is Windows 6.3 (W8.1/Server2012R2)

    ISO is for Rufus user. My USB stick contains bootable custom Winpe (a very tiny Winpe just to run explorer and cmd) with bunch of install.wim/install.esd collections from Windows 7 to Windows 11, also some portable apps that I can run in Winpe. ESD file allows me to fill my USB with much more variations compared to big ISO file.

    With Ventoy you still need to convert esd file to either wim or iso to make it bootable. Sure it is great for people who collect both Windows and Linux iso in one USB. But for Windows only user, Winpe should be more than enough. You don't even need USB if you don't mind dual booting since you can just DISM apply-image the esd file directly into Drive D or Drive E (any secondary partition that you have). I really like DISM++ app to do this since it works with all files (full ISO, full ESD, or just the install.wim/install.esd file) as well as adding boot so I don't even have to open cmd or any other app.

    Simpler and saner than ventoy, but there is no point on having wims in the USB media.

    Just have one or more virgin vhdx in a folder.

    When you need to "install" on blank hdd just copy one (or more of) of them to the blank media, and add it/them to the bootloader using bcdboot or bootice.

    The best part of native vhdx isn't booting them from USB. It's booting them as everyday OS.

    Well, my wim collections are mostly backup from DISM capture-image. Latest monthly updates and my personal drivers and apps are already inside those wim.
