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


I've Had CRT effects for years

As per usual, linux has had retro terminal available for like 10 years. It used to be called 'cool-old-term' but is now 'cool-retro-term'.

Emulates various monitors, colours such as amber and green, apple II, IBM 3278 has scanlines ec etc.

I thought it was cool for a while, and then realised it was actually less efficient than something like guake/yakuake and haven't used it for a few years now.

But of course no mention of anything like this in any of the articles going around the net...apparently tech editors/journalists still live in their Windows World bubbles
