This eterm screenshot is awful :) My Eterm is configured in much more pleasant way. I have a sceenshot of it running mutt here: http://mother.ds.pg.gda.pl/~zdzichu/mutt.png
Most important aspect of Eterm is treating of bold characters. Eterm makes them just brighter, where xterm doubles characters, which makes then ugly. A screenshot of badly bolded character can me seen here: http://mother.ds.pg.gda.pl/mutt.png . Notice Subject: and From: bolding and green on blue texts.
Another point for Eterm -- it pretty fast. Not so fast as xterm/rxvt, but many times faster than gnome terminal on my celeron 366.
And last word -- I was unable to find persuade GNOME Term for using my favourite font, -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--7-70-75-75-c-50-iso8859-2
Bold fonts in XTerm

If you still prefer non-bold fonts, try removing that line and adding the following lines, instead (and run "xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources", if applicable):
I already had the correct bold font without having to change anything.
The man page has more information.
I couldn't get 6x13 working in either gnome-terminal or konsole, which is a shame. :(

Not working, as at 2009-10-28 - xterm is happily overstriking to create bold fonts. Very disappointing.
