Remote telnet sessions btw exist in alot more ways then just a ssh shell, if yoiur accessing a terminal that has options, you have a good selection of choices. Wether your connecting from a unix side variant, unice, or a windows, mac, whatever. Code is code, tools are tools, but to know the systems, how they work, simple backdoors(not like back orifice, and linux trojans kthx), bugs that have been there really helps. To have been around, seen shit, learned shit, shared shit, seen that meaning of 0day, not in stolen, or rehashed, reused, corn beef code. Meh, my opinion is captured. Like SR said, all ppl have their own opinion, go test, choose your own. That's to everyone.
