Who among those present used a computer during the 1980s? We are not talking about the Spectrum, the MSX, the Amiga or the Commodore – which are also very interesting, but now do not come to the case. We refer to the first Apple models or the first PCs with MS-DOS. If you are one of these users and you find these times missing, then Cool Retro Term is for you.
Cool Retro Term is a terminal emulator that mimics the appearance of old cathode ray monitors, And that can be an alternative eye-candy to still efficient flat emulators, such as Tilda or Terminator. There’s no denying that, at the very least, it’s eye-catching, and it’s also quite fun to use.
One of the features of Cool Retro Term that makes it so interesting is that of be able to customize as we wish, And another is that it is relatively light and should work well on limited equipment. In addition, it is built using Konsole’s engine, the KDE emulator, which is already a veteran and is quite powerful. When dealing with a kind of fork de Konsole needs Qt 5.2 or higher to run.
For those who do not want to waste time setting everything up themselves, Cool Retro Term includes predefined customization settings which can be activated with just one click. This is done using different profiles, which are Amber, Green, Scanlines, Pixelated, Apple][VintageIBMDosIBM3287iTransparentGreenPerdofcourseyoucandefineyourown[VintageIBMDosIBM3287yTransparentGreenForyourbudgetyoucandefineyourown[VintageIBMDosIBM3287iTransparentGreenPerdescomptatpodràsdefinirelsteuspropis[VintageIBMDosIBM3287yTransparentGreenPorsupuestopodrásdefinirlostuyospropios
