I've never really used the VT100 emulation, so I can't comment on how good
it is. I do recommend these machines as a dumb terminal substitute and for
kermit/xmodem 'sneakernet'  transfers. In other words to upload a file from
one machine, go somewhere and download it to another machine.
Personally I prefer the 95LX as the 40 column display is easier to read. But the
100LX has a better serial port with hardware handshaking and an 80 column
display which may be better for the VT100 emulation.
 This term doesn't really 'work' here but 'trainernet' doesn't
sound right either.
