This may be in wrong Forum but......
I was curious on what Free/Opensource programs other people have put on their USB Flash drive & found that they have run 'OK' without being 'modified' by those clever people @ PortableApps.com.
I'll start the ball rolling with what I have found that work on my Flash Drive.
Note that I DON'T include any programs found on PortableApps.com (either released/beta or trials) - this is for NON-PortableApps.com programs
I don't know if any of these actually write anything in the registry or create additional folders etc - maybe some 'expert' can tell me how to find out
