Provider Shells

There are a ton of Linux users on dev.to, do any of you use remote Linux shell services or is everyone operating off of their PCs and laptops?

Am I trapped in 1995?

Why are you using remote shell? You need more CPU power or somethings?
My daily pc is a macbook, but if I need specifying os, software or configuration I'm using virtual machines - it's good enought in more cases.
If I need more cpus i'm of course using remote servers but only to run

I enjoy the continuity. Its always-on and it's accessible just as easily through my phone or a borrowed PC.

It doesn't appel to me. Remote shell must be accessible only when your pc is up.
And you really working using phone or borrowed pc?

I'm sorry, I don't follow. Could you please rephrase?

Do I work regularly off of my phone? No. But I'm thankful that I have the option to monitor or control personal projects without dragging my laptop around.
