"xterm still beats every other X11 terminal emulator I have tried in terms of stability
and quality of emulation. Even the resource use is less than in most newer
competitors, except rxvt. Since a terminal emulator is something that just needs to
work reliably, no eye candy needed, xterm is the best. I don't see any point in
reinventing this particular wheel."
Unfortunately its widget set was designed by the criminally insane.
