Thank goodness for that! I had the 'joy' of using exclusively Teletypes for
the first two years I worked with computers, and I didn't (and still don't)
miss them one bit!

Which is not to say I look down on those who collect/restore them, I
understand they are an important part of the history, and I salute those who
are into them. I'm just saying that, as a user, I was glad to move on!
