Xfce is my environment of preference, so I went with Terminal (Xfce).

Yakuake and Guake, drop down terminals with F12, are the epitome of convenience.

The same goes for me.
I don't think I use the terminal enough as I don't use any features of the terminal emulator so don't see a difference between them.
I'll check out Cool Retro Term though as it looks like fun.

hmm, neither do i actually. it just holds a shell.
but urxvt is configurable via .Xresources, which i appreciate a lot, and blazing fast.
opening a terminal window is near-instant, and that's the deciding factor for me.
put that on a hotkey, it's the single most-used command on my system i guess (and no need for any *uake dropdown).

I like xterm. It's classic and is very lightweight and efficient.

Thanks, I'll take a look at urxvt -- I usually have at least one terminal window open but on occasion I will just decide I need to open another.
