    Some of you may already know about mojopac. For the others I can only say that it is the most revolutionary virtualization program out there and the easier to configure; if you can use windows you will have no problem in using mojopac.
    And the good news is that this fantastic piece of software is free for personal use. :thumb: :D

    Thanks for that pandlouk.

    Gave it a whirl a fair while ago and it seemed ok albeit a bit slow starting up.

    Things have probably improved and now they have that magic word "free" I just may give it another whirl.;)

    Thanks pandlouk, it sounds interesting. I wonder if it is similar to Returnils Virtual Partition that you can take with you.

    It seems like a mini copy of your operating system that runs off your thumb drive.

    You can browse the net and check your emails but haven't checked it out fully.

    Have set it up on a thumb drive and things are still slow but it's workable and would be ideal to take away with you to plug into a host system

    Things are probably slow here as I'm using a low quality 2gig thumb drive.

    Hello,
    I'm using PortableApps for quite some time.
    Will try this one too, see how it goes.

    The one major problem I have with Mojopac is that it doesn't work if you are a limited user.

    When it's fixed it will be a great piece of software but until then, be aware of this limitation.

    I wish I'd realised before I bought it.

    Tried it, sounds very promising, but I've got only blue screens when trying to open it. Waiting for an answer.

    Well peeps, this may be slightly a bit hard to understand except for those that use VM's and know how to thin out XP.

    Think about having your whole C drive as a virtual pc on a stick of say 2 gig.

    Quite easy to copy/paste to a new/any hard drive with all user settings available and run in a virtual environment.

    What they don't tell you upfront is that the READ SPEED of your USB drive plays an all-important role. Many of the less expensive flash drives only perform read ops at around 22-25 MB/s (or less). Mojopac will creep. If you are going to be using this a lot you need a high quality - fast - thumb drive. The Corsair Voyager GT series is great - 34 MB/s. It doesn't sound like a big difference, but in terms of responsiveness it's huge. If you have a flash drive and want to know its read speeds, just use HD-Tach, a very small app that will show you your read speeds - and burst speeds - and you'll know if you have a USB flash drive that will allow Mojopac to run fast and smooth.
