Windows is sold in the form of DVDs and downloadable ISOs. The Windows DVD can be put into an optical drive for easy installation. However, with the advent of ultra portable devices and tablets that do not have optical drives, installing Windows from the setup DVD becomes a problem. The only solution for these devices is to install Windows from a USB device such as a flash drive.
With the advent of ultra portable laptops, optical drives are becoming a thing of the past.

For users of these devices, the only option then remains is to use a flash drive to install the operating system of their choice.
