I'm not at all sure. The way I use the stick is to
carry my lecture/grade/hw materials back and
forth from home/school/smart-class-room. And
when I save files, I use the network drives.
The advantage for me, should we get a portable
GRETL, is that I don't need to wait on IT to install,
configure, fix, &etc. I usually have to petition for
the stat room PCs, then the library machines, then the
econ lab, then student center PCs.... ugh. And every
semester IT wipes the systems and I have to
The nice thing about carrying Mozilla is that I don't
leave cookies on anyone's machines, just my stick.
Plus I have my personal links on the stick.
I suspect the same thing could be accomplished by
reformatting the stick as a small linux machine and
put GRETL on that....
w/r/t read+write, I've not reached a slowing point yet,
and I usually either upgrade or lose my flash before
that then :-(

Ah, I see, "portable app" = "portable Windows app". It wouldn't
be very difficult to put gretl on a stick. The one problem I see
is the writing of user files. I suppose these would have to go
onto the stick too. But aren't you limited in the number of times
you can write/erase files on a stick? (And of course you couldn't
write such files to a typical CD at all.) Any idea how other apps
such as Gimp handle this?
