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.

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!)

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?
