    WP makes a great platform for a digital textbook. Running WP from a Stick would allow a student to have a basic working copy of their textbook, even if not connected to the Internet.

  4. “WOS Portable” – der Webserver auf dem USB-Stick

    Apache 2.2.0
    MySQL 5.0.18
    PHP 4.4.2/PHP 5.1.2…

  5. […] My name is Art, and I’m a Portable Apps user. I frequent places like, looking for new programs I can stick on my thumb drive. I carry my email client with me, my FTP program with me, and my word processor. If I got an even bigger thumb drive, I could take a whole office suite with me. I don’t have to worry about installing and configuring these programs on different computers – I just pop the drive in and go.
