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.
