Lifehacker is doing a vote on the best portable app suites and we're happy to be in the lineup (thanks to our many awesome users who nominated us). And we'd love to have you show your support by voting for us in the poll!

Unfortunately, our competition contains illegal software (GPL, copyright, licensing, and trademark violations) and has stolen software from PortableApps.com (stripping off the GPL license, readme, source code, etc from our many portable application launchers and other open source utilities and attempting to pass them off as their own).
