+## What about ssh-copy-id?
+
+I'll admit that I wasn't aware of the [ssh-copy-id](http://linux.die.net/man/1/ssh-copy-id) unix
+command when I wrote this tool. The main advantage that `ssh-forever` has over `ssh-copy-id` is that it
+will automatically generate a public key for you if you don't already have one, making it a bit more
+user-friendly if you're not familiar with the SSH key system.
+
+You should probably try `ssh-copy-id` first. Many linux distros come with it built in. OSX users
+can install it with `brew install ssh-copy-id`
