Is is possible to run Ubuntu from a USB pen drive, while simultaneously working and running the main OS (Windows) on the computer? I assume this is like a virtual desktop held on the USB, and displaying in a window on the computer.
I would like to be able to explore/ navigate to it, or minimize and maximize in and out of the Ubuntu [session], while the Windows [session] is still in operation.
Edit/ update: I attempted to install Virtual Box and a portable V-box onto my 16gb USB without luck. It wanted to only install/ run and operate from my computer not the USB.
Is there a way to keep all programs on the USB, launch from the USB and never install anything to the host computer? (Virtual-box or the like) In conjunction with running Ubuntu from that USB like a hard drive and be capable of saving settings, programs and documents? (Not a live or boot-able USB)
