Can't say one is my 'favorite' that tops all others. I use Konsole because I use KDE. Works great. But then so did the terminal that came with LXDE and others.

I do like running Cool Retro Term when working with 'old' machines and OSs like my 1/3 size PDP 11/70 emulator front panel ran by an RPI 4 that I assembled. Cool Retro Term does seem like it has a bug though as it slows down over time. I don't let it runs for days like I used to.

Again, I use several different ones. Mainly urxvt, but Sakura & LXTerminal get a look-in, too. And I, too, love the looks of CoolRetroTerm.....after we figured out it wasn't seeing its own Qt5 libs in Puppy, and fixed it by the use of

Code:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH
.....along with an edited launcher. Runs quite sweetly now.....

Mike.

I hardly use anything else than urxvt basically because of its amazing daemon/client (urxvtd/urxvtc) feature, which spawns terminals the fastest I've ever seen. I haven't seen that idea in other projects I found.

On my system (6 years old now) urxvt startup is so snappy that I never needed this.

Interesting. I have a full-size front panel from an 11/70 (taken off a surplus system we got from NASA/Goddard back in the mid-'80s and cannibalized for spare parts) and one from an even older PDP/8E (old FAA system). One of these days, I'll get one of those running with a Pi and a PDP emulator.
