I'm personally interested in an original because it's the physical standard
that a lot of imitations and emulations decided to implement. For similar
reasons, I have a LSI ADM-3A -- not because it's the best terminal ever,
but because it is so interwoven into the history of UNIX.

I personally seem to use a VT220 for most of my general hacking. It's nice
to have the current loop interface!
