    markymoo, thanks! Great to see that the Portable Apps Suite is listed there and when they refer to it as "the mac-daddy of them all" they're not lying!

    It not a bad list but there's so many good portable applications around now that we could all come up with a decent list if not better. I thought it be useful to somebody. There's 2 text editors on that list, 1 is enough.

    These are great security products for USB. http://www.rohos.com/products/

    Glad to see I am not the only thumb drive finatic :argh: Have 7, all with various purposes. Will probably be adding one more :D since none of my current ones are acceptably fast enough to handle MojoPac to my satisfaction. :doubt:

    Hello,

    Don't get me started :)

    I have 6 thumb drives with me always, running all sorts of portables.

    1. Portable apps, approx. 30 apps.
    2. Potable apps, approx. 20 apps.
    3. MojoPac.
    4. Pendrivelinux, Ubuntu, non-native.
    5. Pendrivelinux, Puppy, non-native.
    6. Pendrivellinux, Debian, native.

    And let's not talk about the portable 250gb hard disk, oh-oh ...

    Mrk
