You can use telnet and ssh to log into a real Linus box and do whatever 
you can do with ssh. That is what I am doing. I don't use any of the 
apps on the Elba except telnet and ssh. It is great for such use. I 
don't think any Windows program could beat it. The Mac, however, has ssh 
built in and should be good.
