Clearly I don't quite understand the feature you most desire. A linux 
distro can be installed to USB should you wish, just like OSX can be. 
Like with all OSes its the tweeks on them that makes it home that is so 
important. For me being able to recreate a system that is lost is the 
important thing, rather than having it on external storage. With OSX is 
the external USB copy replicated on to the internal drive?
