This idea came after an old topic by empireum and my portable app spirit.

The poll says everything.

If you have more than one use, select the main one.

Behind the scenes, I have 53 PortableApps(.com) on my 2G device, from Tor and FileZilla to games and development tests. Right now I'm adding 5.

Carrying files or boot from.

But mine was not big enough so I have bought an 2.5" Mobile Harddrive (250GB).

I normally use thumb drives to carry/transfer files, but I don't have to do that anymore, so I don't need thumb drives anymore.

OK, I'm getting sick of these "Who has this" and "Who has that" topics. This is off-topic discussions but it is to be used sensibly and not for pointless topics like this. I am locking all topics like this right now, because this forum is not what this is for. Go and find a random forum that has no basis or function to post your pointless topics. This is a beta forum, treat it like one.
