I recently purchased an SSD and was wondering if there was an Operating System that allows you to swap between two different machines essentially sharing one partition? Perhaps multiple hardware profiles? In this case the machines are my laptop and desktop.
It would be great to take advantage of the performance of my desktop and then when I need to be mobile just put the SSD into my laptop and go. I don't believe Windows plays nice with this concept for reason of licensing, i.e. major hardware changes triggering reactivation, etc.
Denser, faster, more affordable, and smaller storage could make this a viable option for end users without relying on "cloud" technologies for syncing apps and files. I prefer to have literal, physical control over my information.
