sshd was not installed by default, but 'apt-cache seach ssh' revealed
open ssh packges, and a quick apt-get install <package> solves all my
issues. I was so impressed with it, that I've stuck it on my laptop.
I've dried linux on the desktop before, but wasn't that impressed. This

sound card works, and all the tools I need to actually do some work.

We'll see how it goes this time :)
Ubunto on the servers is more than happy too :)
