I am using a Mac Book Pro Laptop, running Mac OS X.  I run different
NetBSDs inside VMware Fusion and use BBEdit to edit files over sftp
directly in the virtualized NetBSD machine.  I usually have several ssh
connections to the virtual machine open, to start compiler and such, but
the editing is done on Mac OS X using BBEdit.
