For one thing, I get tired of seeing things like:

But it's also due to the fact that I use quite a few .NET applications (and a couple of Java apps - Jalbum and Freemind are worth it!). My main reason for using portable apps has been for the ease of maintaining a single application repository that's synced between my laptop and desktop, with the third copy on a USB drive for the rare case when I use another machine.Old Hand C wrote:See the sticky, the "About" page, and the FAQ.
I wonder how many forum members come across a .NET application that they think is amazing, but know better than to submit it here? Seeing XdN tweaker submitted this week was what did it. My first thought was, "How could that not have been submitted before?".
I know that new members would still end up submitting .NET apps to the main submission thread, but it seems like it would be easier (and more likely to sound polite) to say "This belongs in the semi-portable thread".
