That's interesting. Why do you use all those systems? I
was "like that" when I always got computers from
everyone I knew, when I "found" them, etc. Then I was
under the incorrect impression that installing a Linux
distro was difficult or at least tedious. Now I do it
first thing, if you have a comic book or newspaper next
to you it is fine. Just like you, I try to keep portable
config files (not just for Emacs), which works "in
theory" :) No, that works to 85-95%, really. I also do
lots of stuff with ssh (but without X). First, I did
everything local and then scp the files, now I run Emacs
on the remote Solaris/SunOS with 99% identical
experience.
