"most capable" - whatever that means.
I have a box with a Wyse50 on it. it works fine.
MOst of the machines have "conserver" on it and
it doesn't really matter.
A tty would give you everything that the console gets.
Any vt100 emulator will do you fine. A vt4x0 emulator
would give you nice pretty color curses options if you wanted.
(and everyone forgets that XTerm has a fine Tek emulator
too. Neat things can be done with that and plot(1). A friend
shot down a $15k graphing program with a little perl, plot
and tek emulation and about 3 hrs work.).
