And a properly configured xterm has a properly functioning keyboard.
Given the choice between the two emulators, I'd much rather use E11,
but as a hobbyist that can't afford a full version of E11, I tend to
use SIMH for most things. SIMH also has the advantage of running on
my Mac, which is good since these days I rarely have another Unix box
up and running.
