Problems to expect if user profile stored on server?

Are there any problems to expect concerning IntelliJ (10 or 11)  if you don't store the user profile locally on your client desktop (windows7) but on the server?

Hi Bernhard,

What do you mean under user profile? IJ config directory?

Hi Denis,

thank you for your question.

Yes, I mean the directories .IntelliJIdea10 and the subdirectories config and system, which are part of my user profile.

Hi.

I'd say, this depends on server and how fast is the connection. E.g. IDEA intensively uses its /system directory for caches. With remote machine it may be slower.

In any case you can modify idea.properties file to store user data in different location (e.g. local PC). See: http://devnet.jetbrains.net/docs/DOC-181 (or bin/idea.properties directly: it has quite clear format).

Regards,
Alexander.
