Portable Ubuntu for Windows with Qemu as a Portable Emulator
This has a couple of components:
1. Portable Qemu (see portableapps.com for examples): Qemu (bc it is open source) rewritten to be portable. You unzip the qemu.zip and double-click the exe in it -> there you have qemu running. No system administrator privileges under Windows needed. No one will even know you used qemu :)
2. Portable Ubuntu: A qemu image of Ubuntu that is stripped down so that it will run fast without a kqemu module installed (proprietary).
3. An exe file: which will bind these two components, so when the user double-clicks the PortableUbuntu.exe, Ubuntu launches under Windows. Just like any other program.
4. Additional features: Some kind of networking enabled so that Windows host can access Qemu guest via ftp while Qemu guest cannot touch Windows host. Also, of course, Qemu guest should be able to connect to web using Windows host's networking.
