It has been mentioned that the <enter> key refers to old teletype machines.
Well, that was before my time, really. However, I do remember the
original IBM PC (at a screaming 4.77 mhz) that my parents bought when I was
10 or so. It had (and still has) an <enter> key.

I really have to stop and think to call it a <return> key.

Anyway, just more trivia.
