[tex-live] TexLive portable

Hi everyone,

I have one short (and maybe stupid) question:

When I install the portable version of TeXLive to a USB Stick, will it 
only contain the executables for the OS I use installing?

I thought this portable version would be a great way to wander between 
my Linux Laptop and my wife's Windows machine...

To me it looks like there are only the Win binaries installed (yes, I 
used my wife's pc to install the portable version to the USB)... but I 
am not sure anyway where exactly I would look for the Linux 
applications, so maybe I'm just blind.

Thank you
