Seeing as we're talking about old Unix-y terminals, the ADM-3a was
certainly one of my favourites; there was something about the keyboard
layout that just screamed out "Unix". Was it the unshifted "=" key? The
unshifted "" keys? Can't remember now, but C programming was a breeze
Another favourite was the Teleray 1061, with user-programmable function
keys; yes, we were dumb enough to store our username/password there...
The *worst* terminal I've ever had to use was the VT-220 and its clones; I
was always having to hunt'n'peck for common keys. I still loathe it.
