Came across this guide early today and rushed to the local computer store to pick up the Dex Station. My first impressions are that it is insanely cool. I've got so many tabs open, including a terminal that emulates a Unix development environment. One of my python scripts is running in there as I type this from another window on the desktop. I'll be experimenting with ssh and Amazon Workspaces to see how feasible it is to hook up to a beefier machine if I need more power, although the phone's specs are impressive enough that I will be able to do so much as is. This is insanely cool and I hope that Samsung continues to support this. If they keep getting it right I'll be a Samsung person for the forseeable future.
Which is hilarious because just the other day I was telling people that the Note 9 is nice but too expensive. The dock completely changed my mind. If I could have a badass phone AND a perfectly usable and awesome desktop when I need it...that makes the phone worth every penny.
Thanks for sharing this guide! Super valuable and insightful.
