Just dropping a quick note to say

Carefully crafted in 29 Jan 2007

that MacFUSE and sshfs rule. It’s a great bonus for my dev environment. Now I can move/copy files from one server to the other as if they were local but more importantly I can use Textmate more often to edit them. And sshfs works very well I must say.

If anyone makes the Windows version of FUSE, we’ll instantly have dozens (hundreds?) of truly cross platform filesystems making the operating system’s filesystem support somewhat secondary. Abstraction and programming is great. Another good example (side topic) is what Mysql is doing with their plugable storage engines in the 5.x series. Check this out.
