I am deeply in debt to portable apps, and horribly addicted.

There is a mac-on-a-stick virtualization on board the portable apps site, and i am wondering if there is a place to get a portable virtualization of ubuntu (ie Ibex on a rope)?

I know you can boot the OS from USB, but i am looking for a portable virtualization form (usable with no admin rights available).

Any tracks? thanks in advance

This probably does not help, but you can run PortableApps on 'buntu if you have installed Wine. This at least allows you to run some of the portable apps from the PortableApps menu (like Notepad++, WinMerge & so on). You can also run Thunderbird, so all you mail is in the same location.
