@rysiek I think the difference is very important, especially since ttys are very deeply ingrained at the heart of any UNIX-based system. Calling them a printer ignores the fact that they were always bi-directional, as well as the fact that video terminals that came later still emulated them. Even the xterm and a plethora of "terminal" applications still use precisely the same interface.
