In the summer of 2017, I wanted to know what it would be like to use an iPad Pro as my main computer. I found out that it can actually work, thanks to an iOS app called Blink, an SSH replacement called Mosh, iOS 11 and running stuff on a server.

You could argue the title is a tad bit misleading - there's a lot of thin client DNA in his setup - but it's an interesting look at how to achieve this, nonetheless.

Good for him. For me, a basic operation like text selection and copy&paste on a mobile device makes me want to cut myself.

Since when do Command-C (or X) and Command V-not work on iOS any longer? Oh, you probably did not realize that a keyboard is needed for working on an iPad, just like it is needed on a PC or a Mac or a Surface Pro.
