Re: SanDisk U3

I see your point. Has anyone created a distribution for a Flash Drive? Has anyone created a start script that will remount for any Windows system? I have seen a couple older posts talking about compressed executables (upx I think), but no follow-ups.

installation for U3. I think it would be great to have BASH, text
processing, and other critical tools on the flash drive.

I don't see the benefit of U3. You can put the standalone PuTTY binaries on ANY flash drive. You can also install Cygwin to a flash drive. Making it portable takes a few extra steps (basically you set up a bat file which adds the Cygwin mounts to the new computer).
