    I like portable apps. Use it often. I find your site extremely informative.

    You know, you do have Mac users among your readers. When most or all of the apps are exclusively for Windows, you should include that in the title, so we don’t waste our time looking through a list of apps we can’t use.

    @Greg I’m personally a PC, but I did notice that PDF Split and Merge had downloads for Mac OS X as well as Windows.

    Handy list, I’ll have to take a closer look at a couple of your suggestions. I definitely wouldn’t be without Notepad++; I use it often.

    This is an excellent list of applications you have compiled. I use many of these regularly on my Windows PC and will have to look into some of the others. I find Launchy particularly useful as KDE has a built in application runner that works the same way. I find myself never using the start menu (or K menu) any more.

    I’m loving “Launchy” what a great little app and fantastic post by the way!

    Excellent list, been thinking about setting up a portable solution, as I am always switching machines. Might as well just carry everything on a portable backup solution such as a usb or external hard drive of some capacity.

    Open Source applications have alot of demands today. Many new companies are getting engaged with it. Really it has a long future to go.
