Hotwire blends the command line with the GUI

Great article! I have one semi-correction; when you write "the current releases do not support remote execution or su/sudo", it's true in the sense that we don't yet support Hotwire itself over ssh/sudo, but we *do* support running the regular old Unix shell through those. Basically we just put any command you run via su/sudo in a real VTE terminal. In 0.620 which just came out yesterday actually this is improved.


So things like "sudo yum update", "sudo apt-get install ..." still work as they did before.
