Looks like openSUSE comes with the option of emacs & syncthing installed straight out of the box, including all updates... And it works out of the box with VMware including VMware tools!! Wow. As if someone read my mind regarding my work environment!!!


VMware is up, emacs is up, files synced. Last part is figuring out if I want *all" files synced or have personal files accessible through TRAMP.

in the past it was TRAMP though now I'm having connectivity issues. Running out of time (need it ready for tomorrow).

All files = another backup of personal machine, can work offline or when file server is offline.

Just work related = more privacy, keeping lines of work and personal separate. TRAMP ssh requires password and later key.
