Like Mr Wojciech Puchar, I have a VT100 clone here at home... that I use for kernel debug on a 9600 com1 port... and it works soo good.. May be when you are 55 (or 64 as the beatles song)... you will use konsole and the "boys" will use some kind of "brain cortex" wired interface.... I started to take BSD serious when 2 years ago I was in a "meeting" of linux users... they all showed those wonderful interfaces, light speed programs, and a zillion things they could do with linux... I became very impressed... than I asked... who else is using all this stuff?? I mean which company, how many users?? how many systems installed and running for how long??? well... no answers... got.... Than I asked them why don't they code an commercial application with all that power??? again... none.... Than I said that I coded applications for hundred users on DEC, and VAX... They laugh on me... than I sit in my home and coded a 200K lines of an complete ERP for fuel stations... and in 3 years I am back to the hackers show... Now they have kde 3.5.5 and gnome 2.18.... and NO ONE application program... still... May be my method is not productive, "I still use GDB and CSCOPE" but for sure produces good result at last. Now I admin more than 200 BSD computers. in the old fashion way... with an mtbf of 15 years.. The next invention here is BSD for notebooks... an special "blended" BSD that will be installed in more than 5000 notebooks a year here... the project will begin to roll in some months....
