Hey kids! Ditch that LCD and get ready for the retro CRT world of Windows Terminal

I don't need retro effects

I've still got an old file server which has a CRT display.

There are many retro IT things which I'd argue are better than today - computer keyboards, gameplay in games, Windows before v8.

However CRTs are not one of them. They use electricity like its going out of fashion, use a huge amount of resources to build, really

"large" ones, > 20 inches, literally weigh the same as a large child or small woman and the out-of-the-corner-of-your-eye flicker on

even 100hz models becomes seriously unpleasent after more than a few hours - ie standard office usage.

Bye bye CRTs, you won't be missed.
