Absolutely right :-)

During my Hurd summer 2008 (and my first OSS experience) I didn't know
that Emacs can be installed on the Hurd and had neither heard of
screen nor of the Hurd console :-) So I programmed in nano and ^Z-ed
when I needed to run another program (gdb, for instance) :-) Not
really fun if compared to the Hurd console or screen :-)
