I run Ubuntu 13 on VMWare Fusion on Mac OS X. I prefer to do my development on the Mac since the Mac keyboard and shortcuts on Ubuntu are either difficult to setup, or sometimes don't work.

One solution I used before was to export the /home folder on Ubuntu via NFS and mount it on OS X. However, this caused problems because in order to be able to write to files, I had to change the GUID of the Mac user to match that of Ubuntu and that caused all kinds of problems on the Mac (Google Drive stopped working, etc).

Now I have a new project and a few hours this afternoon, and I'd like to setup this environment correctly.

Any suggestions?
