You can do that with Linux as well; very easily in fact. Whether you want to
just save the settings or everything including programs and personal files,
all is simple. You just need to graft your personal home directory, which
mind you, also allows to mirror your O/S onto a second machine.
When there is a strict isolation between data files and a notorious
Registry, trouble lies ahead. This is probably the reason why my mom's
Windows machine is now crippled to a crawl (guess who will have to burn
time fixing it?) and the reason people sob when they can't boot into
Windows, not even Safe Mode.
