    In the latest from Microsoft, we learn that Windows 8 will allow users to have a 'personal Windows experience' on any PC using Windows 8, not just their main computer / laptop.

    You can read the full blog entry here.

    The use of Windows Live syncs the settings, preferences and apps, which become available when logging in to a different PC using Live ID.

    According to Microsoft, the following benefits are available:

    • Associate the most commonly used Windows settings with your user account. Saved settings are available when you sign in to your account on any Windows 8 PC. Your PC will be set up just the way you are used to!
    • Easily reacquire your Metro style apps on multiple Windows 8 PCs. The app’s settings and last-used state persist across all your Windows 8 PCs.
    • Save sign-in credentials for the different apps and websites you use and easily get back into them without having to enter credentials every time.
    • Automatically sign in to apps and services that use Windows Live ID for authentication.
