ssh (secure shell)
-X (capital X) turns on X Forwarding
so from pc1 to pc2
ssh -X pc2
opens a secure shell on pc2.
If I type thunar, then thunar (from pc2) opens and is displayed on pc1.
(likewise for synaptic, firefox, etc)

OH  .. OK, that sound simple enough ...

Now I understand why it brought out the noob in me ... I only have 1pc, so I have never had a need to use it.

The "fun" thing is that if you have more than one PC and you share filesystems through nfs/samba/NAS, then all your PC's become your PC.  That is, if pc1 is churning pretty hard on a java compile, then ssh -X to pc2 will let you do more important things like (browse the web) fiddle with your web application.  The lines really get blurred on which pc is "primary".  In my case, I run a Win7 vmguest for compiling/debugging Windows apps.  That can be pretty resource intensive.  I can kick off a java compile on pc2 so that the Win7 app can consume the jars (from pc2) using JNI.

Amazon doesn't ship to Argentina and the prices here are as high as 200% more than US prices "if" a product can be found.  Talking computer, cell phones, tablets, etc that is.   :(

Besides, I've never really had a need ... :)  so I'm  8)

hmmm... maybe Argentina can get special dispensation now? ;)
I understand your problem.  20 years ago I was doing some robotic work for company in SA.

Oh I doubt that.  It's only because of his new position that he allowed her withing a country mile of him, they are not known for their friendship.  He was her biggest critic.  It's a big political stunt on her part, the streets are already covered with pictures of her hand, the mate, and his hand with the slogan: "Sharing the Hope", less that 48 hours after the picture was taken.  Lot of tax dollars went into that!

The ssh thing I learned on the Mac first.  It was the first to shutdown X forwarding through rsh.  Debian followed after that. At work, we had rsh on HPUX servers and I always had to figure out how to turn X forwarding back on for my Mac and Debian (done in some archaic cfg file and different for each WM).  Needless to say, there was much rejoicing when the HPUX servers were replaced with linux.  btw... ssh -1 connects to an rsh server.
