Portable apps appears to be hosted on Sourceforge which has changed hands
recently and no most packages come with adware that installs on you
computer as part of the package.  Also I was never able to get it to pass
through the link from the tile in browser to JOSM.

Normally I prefer windows but in this instance I suspect Linux on a
bootable USB might be better.
