If you have not found one you like yet try this,

http://portableapps.com/suite

It seems to be an all in one OS/App launcher.

Install Virtual PC, setup OS image to like, download Portable Virtual PC (google it), put on very large flash drive.

I actually just got my web development server set up inside a Virtual PC setup. It's got just the basics, firefox, IE8, LightTPD, mysql, perl, php, notepad++, java, flash, firefox 3.5b5, WinCacheGrind, and Avira Antivirus. Considering making a new one without any of my personal info that I can put online so that anyone else wanting to do some web development can get up and running in minutes.

Nicest thing is that I can drag and drop files to and from the VirtualPC window, I can copy/paste anything (like text snippets or website addresses) from one to the other, and it automatically gets an IP from my router, so I can access the web pages from my main machine (or any other machine on the network).

If I am not mistaken that website is for apps only, not portable OS's (except mac-on-a-stick which was not wanted)

Yah it does have an app launcher you can install to the flash drive if you click the download button and click on download platform only, that will download an installer to your CP and then when you run it you
choose your flash drive as the destination and it will install a mini-OS to the flash drive and you can load the apps from there. Maybe not what they were looking for I must have mis-read/interrupted the original post..

No, it doesn't install a "mini-OS" to the flash drive, it puts a bunch of programs on there as well as an auto-launching program to let you choose which program to run.
