I found some actual Console terminalsby Simmons (no login)
Could I use one of them to connect to a Linux server? Does Linux still have some capacity to connect to a hardware terminal in its code somewhere? Like a recessive gene maybe.
It'd be cool to be browsing through a Linux file structure in that old CRT green.
