I might come back to you for some practical advice, if you don't mind.

   I will be glad to give back something to you, of course.

   No, using X11 forwarding you can just use SciTE: works fine with the 
mouse, manages BIG files amazingly, and it even has a POV-Ray addon for 
syntax highlighting.

   Again, not a problem if you just use ssh with x11... if you want to 
manage files, just call nautilus from the command line.

I use Ubuntu. I install the server edition so I get a text console.  If 
you install the Workstation, then you get a gui console. It might be no 
big deal but that's what I prefer.  The server edition doesn't come with 
X proper, so I run `sudo apt-get install xclock` and it pulls in all of 
X.


If you're really counting megabits then learn ye vnc 
(vncserver/vncviewer).

I use/support 6000 boxes.  (Is it really a lan when you use all of 10/8 
?) Most of the time I use ssh, but when I need to run our store's app, I 
use vnc, which gives me a remote desktop that is fast.
X is a pig is a pig is a pig. Wait, let me say that again. X-is-a-pig-
is-a-p
uh! autowrap, I'll need to redraw. But first I have to unload my buffer.
ig-is-a-pig.

Behold my superpowers in action!
*HOKA-HEY!*



(pauses a moment, turning to the audience)

Do I come across as a bit off the rails?



(shrugs his shoulders, as if to shake off some thought, then grabs a
cutlass and a rope that happens to be dangling on the stage from above,
and swings off the stage)

*ARRRH!!* Shiver me timbers!

(The scene painting is being pulled up to the roof, while other entirely
unrelated ones come crashing down; then metallic and wooden clatter is
heard offstage, accompanied by muffled curses.)

Well, I bet it's what one get when one learns another to fish instead
of giving just a fish a day.
