I wish there were manufacturers of modern computers with the same aesthetics as 1970s terminals

@thomasfuchs Using these machines is a different feeling compared to modern hardware. Even using emulators is just not like the real thing.

The more I play around with retro tech the better I understand the fascination of retro car people, or people who love music on vinyl. In all of these cases, it's not about the performance or "quality" but something different. A feeling of being closer to the actual technology.

Last night I had a nostalgic dream I was using MTS again -- an operating system I haven't used in almost 30 years.
