And on a side note, you can also use vnc to do GUI type things like
installing apps and updates as well.  I do recommend though that you
learn the command line, at least /some/ of it. You'll find it's much
faster to do things and things can be done from the CLI on slow (ie
mobile phone, dial-up) links that would kill a remote GUI program.
