Linux, with cool features like ssh, really spoils one! No, I don't need
it from everywhere, but my roving laptop users login from varying
locations. Since one of them provides my tech support on the rare
occasion when I need it, ssh is a nice feature to enable.
In the 10 months since I moved from windoze to debian testing/unstable,
I've had no crashes. (Pretty amazing from the windoze perspective.)
But twice my keyboard somehow got locked or frozen, and someone needed
to ssh-in to kill the offending process (gaim). Without ssh, a hard
reset would have been needed.
