This really depends on what you're used to. I have a really hard time using
these scrolling interfaces (I constantly find myself re-typing commands or
scrolling back to see the information I just had on the screen, but that
scrolled off). This is also why, on the Linux side, I wanted what now is
called nlkd (and I was long planning to move this over to Xen, too, but I'm
simply not given time to do so).
