    Hi, managed to get this far

    If you load a lot of the FireFox security plugins, do a cold reboot before proceeding............. I had a few problems to begin with and that fixed it

    I have got it on my F:\ drive at the moment which is a physical slave HDD. Will try it on portable media later.

    Win 2000 SP4 P4 2.26GHz 1GB PC2700

    well i installed it yesterday on my usb drive and ( it takes quite a bit to install it ),

    Hi,

    Yes, it is interesting, and I can see the convenience of having all your own stuff to carry about.

    I notice that they have used the "portable" versions of the apps they include. This is good, in that it obviously is intended to get rid of some of the bloatware elements, but, more importantly, it means that the software is legitimately licenced for portable use.

    If you look at the TOS for Microsoft products it would possibly fall outside of them? The whole concept does raise some interesting legal/licencing issues for the IT Industry?

    Like a lot of the old licences say: "for installation on a single computer 1-2 processors" or something like that?

    Now, If I put stuff on a medium and run it, then I haven't actually installed it? also, I am starting to see apps where you can "install on one portable device"

    Did you hear the one about the Corporate Intellectual Property Lawyer who jumped into the crocodile pit at London Zoo?............... he ate three of them before keepers managed to shoot him
