Is that a VT220 or are you just happy to see me?

A rare glimpse into the hardships of terminal emulation development.  Here is my office... erhm... living room.  The first thing you may notice is that I have a real VT220 to compare against.  To the right of the terminal is a Raspberry Pi 4 running the VT100 simulator.

I previously mentioned PDP-10 and ITS.  On the far right is an emulator for the Knight TV, a very early bitmap display system attached to the MIT AI lab PDP-10 running ITS.
