I wish there were manufacturers of modern computers with the same aesthetics as 1970s terminals
@thomasfuchs Maybe you can build one using a 3D printer!
@thomasfuchs It even has widescreen, that's what the kids like these days
@thomasfuchs I wish people still used words like terminal
@thomasfuchs Using these machines is a different feeling compared to modern hardware. Even using emulators is just not like the real thing.
The more I play around with retro tech the better I understand the fascination of retro car people, or people who love music on vinyl. In all of these cases, it's not about the performance or "quality" but something different. A feeling of being closer to the actual technology.
@loke @thomasfuchs sounds like input latency. Sometimes I like to close Linux's window manager and work in a direct TTY terminal just to get this feeling. https://www.extremetech.com/computing/261148-modern-computers-struggle-match-input-latency-apple-iie
