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.

...how bad it is to provide too many choices to your users...

<noFlames>

Well, I disagree that having many ways of doing something is a problem. It is a blessing having choices, and being able to pick the one you like most.
