"Alas, not that great of an answer, I've spent some time trying, and not really gotten anything I'm happy with, I use portableapps.com for almost everything at work, but not for getting Unix, or even emacs.

Not to say that this is not a solvable problem or even a hard one, I think someone who groks windows just needs to take a look at it.

File system wise, depends where you want to uses it. Probably ntfs, if all you care about is windows (well, can work with Linux), I use fat32 on a 4gb (wasteful for cygwin though, many small files), and I've looked at using UDF (DVD file system), but need to get around to making my linux box write to it."
