I've seen tool after tool that tries to make SSH'ing into a remote machine more "comfortable", but I honestly don't do enough remote work over SSH to make it worth the time required to set it up. I probably spend an hour or two over SSH per week, and Ubuntu's minimalist shell defaults are perfectly fine for the little work I do.

There are plenty of people that do use ssh for the bulk of their work. In that scenario, these sorts of optimizations are quite useful.
