Portable Linux

Portable Linux is a tool that lets you create bootable USB and removable drives using popular Live CDs based on Casper (like the Ubuntu family of distributions). It sports some unique features. The live setups it creates let you use the remaining disk space on your USB drive to store and transport files between computers, as usual. If your distribution supports persistence, the files and settings you edit on your live Linux distribution are persisted across reboots. Finally, you can access the area used to store your files from within your Linux distribution.

      Release Notes: The target device list is now refreshed when a drive is plugged in or disconnected. The target device list now shows a pretty list with the name and size of the drive, not just the device file. The wording in the user interface has been rewritten to be clearer and shorter. Helpful icons make the interface more attractive. If available, gksu is automatically used to make the transition to administrator mode.
