X Terminal Emulator of the Year
A newer category that has been very close in each of its first five years.

A rather hard question, but xterm runs almost anywhere without all the other dependencies, very reliable.

I don't know all of them, I wanted to find a full-featured one and selected roxterm.

I used to use roxterm, but it is 'broken' on Debian stretch, so I use urxvt.

aterm - I can build it the way I like it

i hate it when the terminal doesn't pop up instantly, that's why i've been using urxvt for a long time.

what's to say - customzation via config files is always better than clicky menus.
customzation via Xresources is OK too.

Actually, st. A terminal shouldn't have bling.
(Admittedly, I use Terminology. Yet!)

why is QTerminal not on the list?

bathory 01-04-2018 11:48 AM

Voted urxvt as there is no mrxvt

jeremy 01-04-2018 02:59 PM

QTerminal has been added.


JWJones 01-04-2018 03:45 PM

st, followed by urxvt.

xterm with 256-color support (from source, not from system-packages)

Main reason is full support for Unicode combined with simplicity and easy configuration.

@ Jeremy - in light of Wayland, should things like this be "Graphic Terminal Emulator" of the year?
