Terminology, stylish terminal emulation
While putz-ing on Bodhi Linux, I came across one of the things that endured me to Bodhi in the first place, Terminology.
Terminology is the standard terminal emulator for Enlightenment, which is the standard desktop environment for Bodhi Linux.
What I first loved about Terminology was the icon, and then the old school feel of it that made you relive your TRS-80 or IBM mainframe terminal days. (If you are an old fart like me.)
Then, when I did a little research and found out just how many cool bells and whistles came with terminology, I loved it all the more.
This is one cool terminal emulation.
It gives you all the old school charm, but with features you just don't see on the newest terminal emulators out there. Features even the heavy weights like Terminator don't have.
Since I am lazy, and because the Terminology people did such an excellent job already, I am going to just paste here the main contents of https://www.enlightenment.org/about-terminology.
See what I mean, no need to write all that myself. ;)
You can download Terminology here:
or if you are a Ubuntu user, here is the info for installing it on 14.04:
And here is a screenshot of me using it on Xubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit edition:
