Terminal Emulators Question

Been living in Linux for almost a year now and have tried various terminal emulators. I've also looked at the man pages for a lot of them as well. Right now i use either aterm or Eterm.

My question is what if your favorite terminal emulator and why? Also do any others, other than konsole and gnome-terminal allow you to copy from and paste into? It is a feature i haven't discovered how to do and i can't imagine really not using.

Well, the one that I use is Aterm, it has transparency.
(You can copy in and to any terminal emulator by selection text and pasting it with the middle click)

There's xterm. Lightweight, allows pasting, has just about every feature in the book.

Ive been using Xterm, because it has alot of features. To copy and paste in Xterm, select the text as normal, by left clicking and draging over the text, then release the left mouse button, and click the highlighted text with the left mouse button.

I am very fond of Eterm. I like the Ctrl+righ-click menu (I never use the buttonbar, it's disabled in all my themes), plus it renders directory and file listings well. I have tried using aterm, but I always go back to Eterm because I get really really annoyed with the bold text (dir names, etc) and I can't figure out how to get rid of it. LOL
