In my first class here (at TU-Berlin) I gave a short "history of
computer music" introduction[*] and I toured through the music n
languages lineage. It would have been superb to be able to open a
terminal, run a PDPx emulator and actually compile a score! Of course
the emulator should have a "native speed" option to slow down things to
the crawling pace of that time...
