McGrath, it depends on the age of your computer. Booting via USB is a relatively new thing (well, it's been around for a number of years, but never particularly well supported).

If it works, then obviously it works. The main issue you might have is disk speed, which in turn depends on the USB variant you're plugged into. It *may* be considerably slower than an internal hard disk. How bad that is in practice depends a lot on what apps you run and what they do.
