Slax Linux Portable

This is an idea off the internet that i tweaked a bit,
it will also work with any Live Linux Distribution
and, it saves your settings to it's internal memory, unlike
Linux live CD's that you boot directly.
Tell me what you think of the idea.

PenDriveLinux

PenDriveLinux already has this, but I'd like to see it happen. Also in Qemu.

they work great with out having to reboot you can run linux or ubuntu while still in windows although ubuntu is very slow and eats up your resources when you have windows running........... is there any way to do this with windows or osx?

Ultimate Portability

We have portable distros. What we need is one portable solution that tops the best portable Linux solution currently in existence, Qemu Puppy. If there is anyone here who hasn't heard of it, maybe I should explain why it's the best. Sure, it's made of Puppy Linux, a tiny, fast, amazingly well-thought-out compact distro, but what makes it remarkable beyond that is that it can be booted several ways: At the hardware level it boots the PC itself. It boots in Windows and performs well, though not as well as natively. It boots in Linux.
So, you may be wondering, how can we top that? Qemu Puppy has a problem: Well, when in Windows, it has no sound. Also, it has no access to the outside machine unless especially configured to share files with the outside machine through networking means, something I have yet to figure out how to do, if it's even possible. It may have other shortcomings as well, but those were the two that put a brick wall between me and my dream of true fully functioning portability.
Also, I'd recommend using PizzaPup as the base instead, as it has Firefox and gets rid of some of the excess from Puppy.
