Portable software or apps for Linux/Ubuntu is some sort of difficult topic but I think this is very useful. Like me who run Ubuntu operating system from USB drive as a live version they must be benefited by using portable Linux apps.

I guess there have only one alternative way where you don’t have to install any Linux software manually (by using command), or need to download every time from Software Center. Guess, what’s the way? Yes, you can run any time any softwareOnly Which Software have Portable Linux Version* by just a click, this is called Portable Linux/Ubuntu Apps.
