Another feature of Windows 8 Build 7955 has been exposed, this time shedding some light on what appears to be only available for “Linked” Windows accounts, allows for users to “roam” to different computers and devices with their various settings and configurations, automagically applied.
The range of settings for roaming include the desktop wallpaper, Aero glass color, accessibility options, language options, applications settings (probably only for AppX packaged apps), Windows settings and WiFi profiles and Windows-managed passwords.
Together with the Windows Store, this feature should deliver a consistent Windows experience with applications and settings available anywhere on-demand.
In addition, it’s also interesting to note the two roaming options “enable roaming on paid networks” and “enable roaming on low bandwidth” which would indicate Windows 8 might have the ability to distinguish networks with data charges and/or bandwidth limitations.
