Why I hate Terminal on Macs

Ugh.  Just ugh.  I had a lab in my Computer
Science 202 class today.  The computer I sat down to was already booted into Mac OS X, and I didn’t
want to restart it just to get into Windows, so I just logged in and opened up terminal since I’d be doing
the whole thing over SSH anyways.  I should have basically the same experience, right?

Wrong.  So wrong its insane.

I had
pleasantly forgotten that even when using SSH terminal doesn’t send nice commands like “Pg Up” and “Pg Dwn”
to the server, nor does it send “End” for some reason.  I can’t remember, but I’m also pretty sure
it refuses to send “Home” as well.

This is why I hate working on a Mac.
