Windows 7 Offered on USB Flash Drives, Sort of
Microsoft has previously considered delivering software via USB flash memory sticks, but it has apparently taken the ingenuity of the Chinese black market to bring the concept to reality. Too bad the software is pirated, but from a purely marketing design standpoint, props on the slick looking retail blister packaging.
Any tech-savvy user would quickly dismiss a "10-in-One versions" copy of Windows 7 being sold on a USB drive and realize it is a pirated version. This makes us wonder though; was Steve Ballmer's signature placed there to help convince the average Chinese consumer?

Selling point is that it runs/installs much faster than DVD, LOL...
had to laugh at that, because as if 10-20 minute OS install time for Windows 7, over the half hour to hour install time for XP or Vista isn't fast enough (not including Windows Updates)... seriously though, how much faster would it install, I doubt much, load times for files would be faster, but the actual install to the Hard drive wouldn't/shouldn't be much faster than from DVD.i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green
