All those black screens[edit]

Hi Huihermit,

Thanks for posting screenshots of various Unices, but don't you think all those little black screens are a bit boring and hard to read? Esp. in the case of 1970s research Unix, there's really no need to set your terminal to this color scheme; the PDP-11s at Bell Labs were originally teletypes, so they would print black ink on (probably) white paper. I.e. black on white or light-yellow would emulate the original even better. Just a thought. QVVERTYVS (hm?) 11:07, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi, that's a valid point, and I could consider changing the terminal settings. I just wanted screenshots from real Unix, and I was using some default terminal settings (more typical of a VT100 than a teletype). I hadn't put much thought into the terminal colors. I agree that they may be difficult to read clearly from the thumbnails, but that's basically true of any terminal screenshots. I (personally) think these types of screenshots are interesting, but maybe not everyone would agree. However, I do think they are relevant in illustrating these types of systems (especially for those who are unfamiliar with Unix or who have never used an older Unix). Best regards.
