I don't quite understand the purpose of something like PortableApps, so maybe we can discuss that here.
I want to setup a USB stick to carry a bunch of programs around with me for convenience. Now, a lot of programs these days come with portable installations. So, that means I can just run it fine off the stick. In that case, what's the point of something like PortableApps? Is it just a tool to launch these things? Because if that's the case, I'd rather use something like portable FARR or another program like that.
Also, there's been a lot of talk lately of portable file associations in programs like Total Commander and XYplorer. I can also see myself using the file manager as my portable OS. meaning, I insert the stick in the computer, then I open the file manager, and using the portable file associations configured there, i run things off my stick as if the file manager was the central OS.
Essentially, i want to create a situation where once I stick my stick in, the computer I'm using is centered around whatever I have on the stick, not on the original computer.
