    By USB Apps i mean the platform, not actual portable applications.

    http://www.everythingusb.com/software.html

    I am starting to get interested in PortableApps Suite. It is freeware and simple. Can work with applications at www.portablefreeware.com so it has a huge selection of portable programs.

    Mojopac is automatically off my list because it does not work without admin rights which my school and most work places use.

    Ceedo is shareware and too much hassle for me using it.
    U3 is fine but only availlable in USB's purchased.

    Hello,
    It should be multiple choice.
    I use Mojo, PortableApps, PendriveLinux - all of these can run on top of existing platforms. U3 is annoying and useless - the first thing I do when I get my hands on a U3 device is to remove the U3 completely.

    a must in my bootable (8Gb) USB...

    -EBCD (reconfigured)
    -GParted + cloneZilla-Live
    - a 2Gb Fat16 partition for respository purpose

    ....that's all. As for those listed for polling, the last seems to be more usefull than the rest. It's loaded in one of my 4gb thumbdrive but seldom used.

    I normally use SLAX, however it requires a system that can boot off a flashdrive. I'm just looking into this pendrivelinux mentioned here that can run on a windows system without needing to reboot.

    I just tried pendrive linux but it seems it needs admin privileges because it asks to install something when you open it up.

    None of the above. I have also disabled auto-open\play on all. I just plug it in and when I want access I do it the old fashion way.....double-click. :p
