my point was in most internet cafes, there are no vt100 terminals.
that in this particular cafe, the reason why the vt100 terminals are
more popular is because they are better located in the cafe - up on this
cool platform thing and one part is by a window and you can sit with a
friend across from you while you're online. (some of the other units
aren't as socially located).

hence when a decision is made as to what unit to get one's email at the
"internet cafe", in seattle, there are many other considerations :-)
