It's important to note that each specific terminal can have different control codes. The xterm ended up being the de facto standard but it's probably not a rule.
This isn't just graduates (says the dude who spent an hour trying to recover half a database cluster that AWS ate)
They won't boot, won't start, won't shutdown- only answer I got was rebuild them and support won't help.
Internally at where I work, AWS is the least reliable datacenter we run workloads in.
Some of listed falsehoods are reasonable first approximations.
Is it bad that I'm many years past graduation and I still think he is a genius? Sure, he is often wrong, but I'm amazed by his view / vision of the world.
Thinking about the most probable causes of extinction of the whole human species and trying to create startups that decrease that possibility is really unique.
He's also good. Very very good at what he does. Talent+practice have put him in sneezing position to both be innovative with electric cars and making space launch vehicles.
He's not a saint
Did you know he bought the X.com domain back off PayPal for the 'sentimental value'? It's now been sitting blank for 2 years. Fuck knows how much he paid.
I think for him the end goal isn't money. It isn't the advancement of civilisation. He exists to stroke his own ego.

In fact for Holmes you were viciously attacked by social media and mainstream journalism if you voiced even a hint of skepticism. I don't think people realize how easily the Elon Musk narrative can collapse and he ends up - at best - persona non grata.
What do you think is better for ,,elevating human conciousness'': leasing and renting out high-end office spaces or finding and funding the best neuro scientists to productionize and monatize the brain-human interface that they were working on (and were lacking real funding)?
It's too bad that Elisabeth was that good at manipulating and getting so much power so fast, because she was a great engineer. Still, I don't consider her a genius as what Elon is.
I think that Bitcoin continues the original spirit and vision that Paypal and X.com were about, but the fight is not over: there's still yet no widely spread global easy to use internet-native currency available, though I think it's just a matter of time.
