Brought back the memory
This application have brought back my memories when I was using SunOS on Sun 3/60 and Sun IPX in early 90's. It was among the application that I regularly started in X session.
Now, it evolved and have more features than the previous orignal version, and runs on GNU/Linux (Slackware distro).
Best program for CLI lovers.
I love CLI (console / command Line Interface). Mostly, I do my jobs in CLI mode, sometime it is difficult to handle many things at a same time. Sure I can use Alt+F1-Fn to change console, or use splitvt, but it need something that can handle all my working session (network monitoring) at the same time. Yes, there is X Window to help me, but, what if I had a computer with very low resources or graphic adapter that XFree86 doesn't support yet to work with?
I very impressed with twin and it may be used in my working environment for a long time. I use kernel's VGA+ Text mode and it is very stable (and easier to config) at this moment. I also tried using SVGATextMode (stm) to get better resolution/results (S3 Trio64) but it sometime hangs my computer if switches from X Window session to console mode.
I recommend twin to every body who likes CLI enviroment.
