I don't know if this is possible since I am not a programmer, but I have thought for a long time that it would be great if someone would develop an OS that runs from a flash drive. What I would like to see is a platform that would possibly autorun when the drive is plugged in and list the portable apps located on the drive in a virtual "Desktop". I know the U3 launchpad drives have been released, but I don't own one, and I think it would be great to have an alternative. Besides, from what I understand, you are required to purchase much of the portable software, and many free applications are not compatible with it yet. Any thoughts?
