Which terminal emulator do you all use


I used urxvt/rxvt-unicode for many years, but I'm finally going to stop using it because its font rendering is off (it kerns wrong). I'm switching over to XTerm, which actually has everything I need (256 colors, Unicode support for at least European languages, Fontconfig support, etc). I don't need transparency (it doesn't work well with the Solarized color scheme I'm using).

Which terminal emulator do you all use?

I'm glad you started this thread. I'm curious myself.

For a long time I used sakura. A few months ago I switched to rxvt-unicode. It was actually after I tried .Xdefaults from your website. Recently, however, I've been thinking of switching to xterm myself - for totally different reasons, though. I'm trying to cut down on installing 3rd party packages where perfectly functional software exists in the stock Slackware.

Konsole for me too, I'm a tab addict so xterm isn't really an option and I figure what the hell, I'm already using KDE anyway.
