    Not even 16 GB for a USB stick - my Pro+WMC stick is an 8GB model (one of those "gamma green" MicroCenter-branded OEM USB 2 thumbdrives they have been blowing out regularly - I have two; the other is used for Mountain Lion installs).

    Even 8GB is really too big for JUST 8 Pro+MC - it's big enough that I can park Office 2013 + KMSnano on there, too.

    At some point I'll be getting more such thumb-drives - for Pro without MC and 8 Standard (no need/use for Enterprise because none of my customers have a use for WTG).

    As long as you didn't use to keep any data on the stick as well as just a very few Apps, it maybe ok. But I would do that for to use for my work. And that may exactly the point: For WHAT those portable drives/OS's are being to be used!

    Does the USB version use the same license from the desktop?

    As Windows To Go: YES! Not sure for Windows 8 Pro, I use the real Windows To Go created from Windows 8 Enterprise and that is using the same License as on the Office Computer which I used to create. And I use USB 3.0 HDD's because they're bigger and faster than any USB Stick! I need to carry quite a bit of Apps because I use those W2Go drives for servicing by cutomers.

    I'm guessing it must be almost unusable on a USB 2.0 drive.

    That's right! Even an USB 2.0 HDD is much faster than an USB 2.0 Stick, it's still to slow for "Normal" working.

    The USB 2 W2G is much much faster than a Live CD however :D

    That's just true (for an CD/DVD)!:D
