Only one thing missing

A Lightweight Linux Virtual machine boot loader to boot Windows XP, 7 or 8 / audio & video production software / Steam etc
and everything else

Portable Everything

With those speeds, would this mean a real portable operating system is finally viable?

I've been running linux on a cheap freebie usb2 flashdrive for years and it has run just fine in my experience.

Maybe this will drive down SSD prices.

I've been wondering when USB stick manufacturers would step up their game after Sandisk won the Tom's Hardware USB 3.0 showdown.

I'm somewhat disappointed in my 32 GB Corsair survivor as it maxes out @ ~80 MB/sec sequential read and ~40 MB/sec sequential write. I had almost convinced myself that such was the best I could get for a USB drive. Almost.

Depending on their speed, the cheaper drive types listed here could serve as alternatives to the Sandisk 64 GB drive that I'd otherwise be buying.
