Debian on OSX

The end result. Introduction About a year back, someone on reddit posted a very clever trick, running linux applications natively in OSX using a headless Debian virtual machine, connected to over ssh. I decided to replicate this on my own system, and finding documentation and guide lacking, I have decided to create my own for others wishing to follow in my footsteps. While getting this type of thing up and running is not as hard as it looks, you will still need some basic knowledge.
