When Windows 8 ships in the next year or two, you'll be able use Windows Live for single sign-on roaming.

Windows Live is already in use to connect to SkyDrive and Office Web Apps. It also gives MSDN and TechNet subscribers a master password that offers access to an array of Microsoft sites.

Windows Live can store your Windows settings, allowing you to log on with a variety of devices and have the same user experience and data.

One scenario is where you have a work computer and a home machine. You can stop what you are doing at work, and when you get home finish your work -- Windows Live essentially saves your place for you.
