@stevejb: Awesome -- can you post a screenshot of Emacs running in your VM?

comment How to make fonts smooth and readable in Debian/Ubuntu?
@stevejb: Nope :(. It was a little better in VMWare, but still terrible. I ended up reverting to iTerm + ssh'ing into a VirtualBox machine that runs Emacs in a TTY/no GUI. It works pretty well -- here's my silly provisioned setup. GUI Emacs would be great though because DocView is super handy.

Your $PATH variable is probably corrupt -- did you blow it out when you changed /etc/profile?

comment Slow TRAMP mode in Emacs
Thank you! That port is much, much faster for TRAMP and flyspell. I compiled it with Homebrew, and it works out of the box.

comment How to make fonts smooth and readable in Debian/Ubuntu?
Thanks for your hints (har har)! I adjusted my ~/.fonts.conf, and it's better, especially with a bold font (sadly, Emacs doesn't like bold Inconsolata or Monaco). I wish it was more 1:1 with OS X, but it's a definite improvement. It's still ugly over X11, but switching to VMWare and Unity mode lets me run the "native" Emacs window without using X11 (it's much more reliable than VBox's seamless mode).

comment Slow TRAMP mode in Emacs
@IvanAndrus Yep, and flyspell is indeed painful. Do you know if there are any ways to speed this up? Emacs 22.1.1 (default OS X) is actually pretty fast at TRAMP, but 23.4 and 24.1 are really slow.
