muktware.com: Ubuntu can be extremely easy to use and manage. However, Unity changed (?) something. There is a clear line drawn between Unity users and Gnome 3 shell users. Thanks to the newly launched Gnome shell extension website, quite a lot of users are returning to Ubuntu.
Well, it's not exactly brand new, but I am taking my first real look at Ubuntu Studio 11.04 (based on Ubuntu "Natty Narwhal").

This tutorial explains how you can mount a directory from a remote server on the local server securely using SSHFS. SSHFS (Secure SHell FileSystem) is a filesystem that serves files/directories securely over SSH, and local users can use them just as if the were local files/directories. On the local computer, the remote share is mounted via FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace). I will use Ubuntu 11.10 for both the local and the remote server.
