Cool Retro Term

Cool Retro Term (or CRT) is a fantastic old terminal emulator that mimics the look of classic cathode ray tube monitors.  The project is open source and just had a 1.0.0 RC1 release so it should be stable and full-featured enough to kick the tires and try for yourself.  You’ll need a Mac or Linux machine running Qt 5.0 (like on Ubuntu 14.04 or higher) to use the software.

If you’re really driven perhaps you can get the program to run on a Raspberry Pi (check out the Raspbian ‘jessie’/testing release for official Qt 5 packages, but you’ll probably need to setup a cross compiler to build the CRT source on your computer).
