Working with debian through windows: The remote console that is SSH

Updated 10-27-2011 at 08:12 PM by omgiamlinux

If you want to be, as the kids are saying "k-rad", you'll probably learn a thing or two about linux. But if you want to be "uber k-rad", you'll figure out how to use linux from the comfort of your favorite operating system (for most of us, that's windows).
