I have put XAMPP, PmWiki, Simple Machines Forum, and WordPress all onto 
one memory stick. This allows me to run them all on my laptop plus 
allows me to amaze people by plugging the memory stick into their 
machines and showing them all of the software running in their own 
environment. When we are done, I just unplug the stick, and their 
machine is back to normal.

This does not require a U3 stick, nor does it require installation or 
rebooting on the host machines. The only caveat is to make sure the 
memory stick has fast access. Some of them are too slow to be usable. 
Price and brand name are not good guides to speed and very few stick 
actually list their read/write speeds.
