Really? The only times I ever used it was to access serial consoles with
a better emulation than separate apps.
You've obviously never had to run something that's going to take hours
or days to complete on a remote server and not wanted it to abort half
way through because of a network glitch then.
That's when I use screen, either just setting running something in the
background, or leaving it connected but knowing it will continue if
anything goes wrong and I can just reattach from a new login.
