I have replied to someones comments. My intention wasn't starting a discussion about portability/stealth but giving info to him, because it seemed not clear to him, what you assume everybody knows. Have you removed my comment?
My apologies. I thought it was another discussion about portability of apps, which I tried to direct to this thread. I have added the comment back. It would be clearer if you indicate who you are directly your reply to (in this case, "ken").
In my opinion that's not a good argue. According this logic you can also argue, the most CD burner, DVD ripper, overclocker, password hacker or system improving utilities at all are not working without installing a driver, hence they count as portable.
Not sure I understand your statement. Could you please elaborate? If the proggie requires manual installation of driver, then it is not portable. But if the app installs a driver dynamically (and remove it upon exit), then it should be portable.
Personally I don't like this discretionary stuff. Some people care more some less about whatever so in my opinion it's the best to make it clear and not to assume too much.
In that case, we can agree to disagree, and leave it at that. I would rather the site remains useful to me, rather than follow some black-and-white rule and choke all the life out of it.
