I do not keep a printer at home, so as always, I would have to save all my stuffs on my USB drive and have the files printed at the nearest Internet Cafe. Oftentimes it annoys me that such "Internet" shops don't even have a pdf reader installed in their pc or at times didn't bother to consider installing openOffice Suite hence my .odt and .ods files can't be editted at all. But those are just simple but really very disappointing and oftentimes hopeless cases I have encountered before I discovered PortableApps. I even syndicated the site by subscribing through their RSS feeds. (boo  for so much of the reading list!)

But ofcourse you can always choose what to include and what not to include in your array of portable programs by choosing from their download list:
