Mac OS 9: Carriage Return
Unix: Line Feed
Windows:

@viciousviscosity I actually think Windows got this right 😬

A line printer needs to move all the way to the left _and_ down, after all

@zigg
And that's why we have standards. 😁
That's the wonderful thing about standards: there's so many to choose from.

@viciousviscosity

CrudOS: fuck it, let's denote linebreaks without using characters and instead indexing the point between characters and treating it like a linebreak for the sake of maximum flexibility of text and minimum ease of entering text

@viciousviscosity no no no, first you need a bell when you are nearing the end of a line, then a carriage return and a line feed.
