Re: Preconfigured image with SSH and/or VNC

1) you are a home user – you have trojan infected windows boxes

2) you plug your RPi into your home network to do secure banking on it

3) you take your RPi round to your mates for a demo and don't re-create the SD card afterwards

4) you take your RPi into school
