Windows only: PortableApps Suite 1.0 stocks your USB drive, portable hard drive, or any other drive with a full complement of software, ready to run wherever you plug in.
This new version of the suite (which we’ve loved on in the past) includes the latest portable versions of Firefox, GAIM, OpenOffice, and other open-source gems. The suite also comes with PortableApps Backup for–you guessed it–making backups.
The Standard Edition of the suite requires about 260MB; there’s also a 105MB Lite version that substitutes AbiWord for OpenOffice. Whichever version of this app-tacular bundle you download, you’re going to love it. PortableApps Suite 1.0 is free; it requires Windows.
