CDE - Portable Linux

Postby Yogi » 12 Nov 2010, 19:59

Here's an interesting concept that I'm surprised has not surfaced before.

CDE is easy to use: Simply prepend any Linux command with cde, and CDE will execute that command, monitor its actions, and automatically copy all files it accesses (e.g., executables, dynamically linked/loaded libraries, plug-ins, scripts, configuration/data files) into a package within your current working directory. Now you can transfer the package to another computer and run that same command without installing anything. In short, if you can run a Linux command on your computer, then CDE enables others to run it on theirs.
