General Development The ability to run both console and graphical programs securely on a remote system using SSH brings you a great deal of freedom. When the communications link to that remote system has high latency, however, running interactive programs such as a text editor on the remote machine can become a real test of your patience. The bcvi project lets you edit files on a remote system using gvim (or another editor) on your local desktop machine to avoid the latency.

Yes, actually KDE has managed to come up with the single most transparent way to handle these things. For this reason alone, I tend to use the Kate text editor over all others, simply because I DO NOT WANT to be interrupted and reminded about what is remote or local every time I edit a file.

Even better, if you open an remote file in Konqueror with a non-KDE application (which doesn't support the KIOslaves) KDE will download the file, offer it to the application, an offer to upload it again if you did change the file automatically!
