Atlantis is what I use for muds.  Or if you can get it to boot in terminal.  
Mudder though is to much thinking and thus very clunky.  Type in the one screen

is a two screen deal though but you can get back quicker, but as you said not

What muds do you play?  I used to play a lot over in mud legend.Every once in a 
great while I will still log in and kill something just to let them know I’m 
around, but I think that one is dying off slow but sure.
