I have a rather special question:
I would like to have a portable BitTorrent client on one of my USB-HDDs. Under Win XP (sorry, I use dual boot) there is a site (portableapps.com) which offers a wide selection of apps, which can be installed on any USB device and than work on any PC running Win.
How can I make something similar under Ubuntu? simply copy the program folder onto the HDD? or how to install it there? will it work? (I don't know about inner structure of Linux/Ubuntu :confused:)
thank you very much for your help in advance

Why not install Ubuntu on a usb thumb drive and use transmission?

utorrent works in Wine, and doesn't require installation. Just run the .exe
