Am I the only one who can't stand not being able to have a log of output
that I can scroll back through, and not being able to cut and paste
text from the terminal window?
Those are the two main reasons I normally rather use a laptop or
$macine_with_windowing_environment than a real serial terminal. (This
doesn't mean I don't have and don't use serial terminals, just that a
real serial terminal is rarely my first choice for something that I
want to be functional, instead of just "neat" and "pretty". :)
