I will answer why i want to use portable wine: 

My friends has Ubuntu on their machine but they don't use Wine (because they don't want to install MS softwares or any other reasons). When i go their house, i will get my USB flash drive with me. So if i can use Wine portable, i will put some softwares on my usb stick and i will open these softwares on my friends directly. The same reason with other portable softwares.
