Stumbling over ssh

Naturally this stumbling happened just after me saying “Oh I think I have finally worked out how system XYZ …”

So my new linux distribution (ubuntu in case I had not mentionned) does not install sshd by default. It took me just about half an hour to realize that one.

Of course why should a desktop workstation need sshd running … so it’s probably wise to not install it by default.
