    How to run Terminal on Steroids?


    Well I want to change my Laptop on a Terminal on Steroids Work Laptop.
    I want to use the terminal but I want to get more out of it
    Is there a way to run 4 apps in Terminal at the same Virtual Console?
    Like can I run 4 apps at the same time in tty1 and four at the same time in tty2.. ?
    And I also Id like to know can I make the programs to run on start?
    Since well its a work computer for analyses. I want everything to be started when the OS starts.
    Can this be done?

    Well, cheers.

    Robin

    ps.
    I was thinking about a Ncurses thing that does the task of x11 :P (Very Simple?)

    I assume you're familiar with the 'fg' and 'bg' commands?


    And for the starting upon boot you can always add an rc.mytasks to the bootscripts folder and point rc.M towards it like this:
    if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.mytasks] ; then
    /etc/rc.d/rc.mytasks
    echo "starting custom tasks script"
    else
    echo "custom tasks script not executed"
    fi


    Or something like that.
    Or put something like that in .bashrc if you want them upon login instead. Dunno if this is what you're looking for though.
    Can't tell an OS by it's GUI
