You don't specify open source or commercial, but for windows I used to
constantly use PowerTerm525 at work, it's originally an Ericom product but
DEC bundled it in with the Pathworks client and it did everything I needed
as an old coder who used to write for all the VT1xx AVO features. These
days I use PuTTY which works fine for all my VMS stuff but you also still
have Reflection (pair) and TeraTerm (free).

Even now though I still miss the EDT keypad, muscle memory is a great
thing, having just added this line in I automatically hit KP0 to cursor
down to the next line :)

Linux, no idea. I seem to use lxterm mostly, and minicom for serial
terminal stuff.
