    Favourite X-terminal???

    Myself I use prefer aterm for the moment... Kuake (u know the quake-style terminal for KDE) is also kinda cool, but could have been better implemented.

    xterm. I use Konsole and GTerm when I'm using their respective desktops (KDE and GNOME respectively), but all other times I use XTerm.

    Exactly. It's nice when I agree with someone
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Exactly the same here... I don't like the scrollbar, it's ugly, but I guess it's made to fit into afterstep...

    Have you disables the scrollbar? U can do that, and still scroll with the mousewheel or shift + pg up/down (i think)

    I used to use Aterm, but it doesn't work well with Arch (that bug with end and home, in nano in this case). Xterm is perfectly usable, but I like transparency, so I've been using Eterm lately. Once you disable the scrollbar and menubar it looks great, and it acts mostly like I'd expect the console to.

    Plus it has screen/twin integration. Now I just need to take the few minutes to configure it someday...

    I usually use RXVT, because XTERM doesn't have a scrollbar.
