Audacity Portable makes it possible to use it from your portable device and adds in:
- Live CD Support - Audacity Portable supports running from a CD or other read-only media right out of the box, making it even easier to carry with you and use on other systems. Full details are in the support topic on Running from a CD.
- In-Place Upgrades - Audacity Portable supports the ability to an "in-place upgrade". This means that you can extract it right over an existing installation of Audacity Portable without losing any of your settings and it'll Just Work.
- Partial WINE Support - The Audacity Portable Launcher is compatible with WINE running under Linux/UNIX even though Audacity itself does not yet fully function within WINE. You can use it to open and convert audio files, but it will probably not play or record.
