Just install Ubuntu as usual and choose USB as target. You will be able to do everything that normal Ubuntu can. – Danatela Jul 26 '13 at 6:50
Take a look at LiveCD/Persistence. – Mitch Jul 26 '13 at 9:01
I've tried this and it runs incredibly slowly. Be prepared for very poor performance, especially if you are running it from a USB 'thumb drive'. See this question for one way to speed things up. – Tom Brossman Jul 26 '13 at 16:10
