I've had developers try to do the develop-and-test-on-different-boxes thing. I've not seen it be really productive. Theory has it that KDE's KIO should make it transparent to KDE apps, but even then, I'm not convinced it's a good idea.

Better, in my experience, is use an X server (such as Exceed) or remote-desktop (such as VNC) to really work on the box you want to test on. Nothing says "headache" like banging your head against the wall for an hour or two only to realise that you missed a step (such as copying the file to the right place, or testing on the wrong machine).

There just are so many more issues when dealing cross-machine. It's far better to avoid it, so you can concentrate on the actual task, rather than the environment. My 2 cents, anyway.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
