But why did Lear Siegler just make uhjk for movement instead of hjkl??? WTF?? It makes no sense. uhjk is shaped in such a way that up and down are really up and down from each other. It makes more sense spatially to have uhjk than hjkl. I wish vim would add an official uhjk mode where the undo key is moved to l.

Because HJKL is on the home row of keys.

I too spent hundreds of hours (if not more...) in front of ADM-3As. They were one of my favorite terminals, second only to the Televideo 950.
