It would appear that computing is becoming more and more portable. The trend seems to be for Operating Systems that run from a Thumb Drive or CD and data and other programs that are portable as well. I've been collecting information on the subject, (have a lot of links bookmarked in my Portable Firefox), and have tried a number of things. But it is all very new and no-one seems to have all the answers. It requires a lot of digging to make one thing work properly.

I think one of the biggest issues with all of it is security. To be portable its got to work in just about any machine you might find. But if you can make it work on a machine, you can probably do anything you want with that machine and its native system and data. That's kinda scary. The other thing that's scary is how do you protect your own system and data. I've had my ID and money taken from me in a bar - why not my Thumb Drive - it has my whole life on it.

Anyway, I'd like to see this matter pursued in an organized fashion. Consider it. It could be an interesting project and one well suited to Linux.
The package said "Requires Windows 95 or better" but when I tried to install it on my Linux box - it failed.

How about a lightweight IDS or network pen tester that way when you finish you can have that for your future employee to drool over.....if you are into network security, I don't mean that you copy snort or nessus but something like that is in high demand these days, and if it is good.....can i have a copy ;)
