I downloaded and installed the Windows 8 Consumer Preview on a VMWare virtual machine. I had a Windows 8 Technical Preview installed on the VM and the Windows 8 Consumer Preview happily installed on top of it. Installation went quite well although it took a couple of hours to complete (on a quad-core processor). Hereâ€™s a few screenshots taken during my walkthrough of the Windows 8 desktop system.
Connecting via SSH, requires a user provide his identity to the remote machine using one of several methods. One method lets you access the remote system without entering a password at each login. Normally, when you log in to a system, you authenticate by entering your password for that system. Your password goes, as it is typed, to the remote system, which authenticates it against the /etc/passwd or /etc/shadow file. By contrast, SSH allow a “password-less” authentication method based on public-key cryptography.
