"Portable Apps for Windows and Mac have been around for a long
time, but are less common in the Linux world. Due to the complexity
of Linux dependencies, and the different way different
distributions locate these dependencies, the portable Linux
application long seemed like a pipe dream.
"New website PortableLinuxApps features a number of portable
Linux applications, which will work on any Linux distribution.
These can run off your flash drive or from a folder in your home
directory; it doesn't matter. Best of all, there's documentation
out there to help you make your own program, should you not be able
to find what you're looking for."
