Re: Windows Movie Maker alternative in Ubuntu?
I have never seen any Linux portable apps at all. There are two immediate issues I see with even trying that:

When using a portable app, I suppose the main advantage is that you can use it on varying systems. This usually means that your portable apps ought to be Windows applications. If you are using it on known systems that have Linux installed, you may just have to install it.
Of course, you could install Openshot and then make a bootable USB drive out of your whole OS, and have a portable Ubuntu with Openshot installed already.
