run any app off a USB drive?
« on: August 27, 2010, 01:52:33 am »
Hey, guys, do you have the experience of running your daily used apps off a USB drive?

Which is I am now trying to do. But I find that only portable apps can be run like that.

while some apps like MS office are not portably available. How can I do that?

You need to use portable applications like Open Office.

Just stumbled upon <a herf="http://www.prayaya.com">Prayaya</a>.  I installed prayaya on my USB drive and then installed MS Office 2003 suite on prayaya. It seems working very well on other computers.
