Portable Apps

Portableapps.comPortableapps.com is an exciting website for geeks on the go.  Some of the best open source apps for Windows have been shrunkand encapsulated to work on your portable flash drive.  Everything from The Gimp to VLC (with DVD and DIVX codecs) are available for free.  If you’re like me, your workplace doesn’t like people installing outside software on company machines, but with the software from Portable Apps, you can install the software on a thumb drive, and your settings will save to a file on the thumb drive, not to the Windows registry.
