Is it possible to use a USB to contain Ubuntu and a lightweight variant (Lubuntu) along with updates, files, documents, apps, etc? In other words, can I put everything on a USB so I can open my stuff on any computer?

Is that even possible? If so, how is it done? Would it be fast?

any info on the subject would be appreciated

Is that even possible? - Yes. If so, how is it done? - There's some questions about that here. Would it be fast? - It depends on how fast the USB is. – Uri Herrera May 14 '13 at 5:44

Of course.

Please check this link. In my opinion it lets you do this in the most easy way:

  1. Download Ubuntu distro (Lubuntu would be the lightest)

  2. Download and run Unetbootin

  3. Choose system *.iso image

  4. Chose USB on which you wish to have Ubuntu, and remember to set option that uses some part of USB as system HDD.

And done.
