Why would they, though? AFAICT the entire Windows system was designed to
be centered on the GUI. I'm sure they would recommend using some kind of
remote desktop instead of ssh for remote administration. It would fit
better into the Windows way of doing things, and avoid a lot of the pain
that comes when you try to *not* do things according to Windows' way.

(Yes I was stupid enough to try that before. Never dared try it again.)

perfectly safe; if you look at it the thousandth time, you are in
frightful danger of seeing it for the first time. -- G. K. Chesterton
