Without any comment on the state of any KDE projects, it is kind of frightening how there's almost no quality terminal maintained anymore.

Xterm works fine, but has really wonky ui, worst part is broken scrollbar.

rxvt: dead

urxvt: features in perl....

mrxvt: kind of cargo cult

gnome terminal and backing library: paste bugs, fat

konsole: don't know this one as well, but the list of dependencies is long -- dont' really need a lot of stderr spew from my terminals.

the best of the lot is urxvt, but more love for terminals would be nice, given how important they are.

I've been using konsole with my otherwise gnome desktop for a long time now, and I've been quite
happy with it. I switched when gnome-terminal was crashing all the damn time. Furthermore g-t
didn't have a "find in history" command. (it may now -- haven't looked back).

I don't know how I ever lived without "find" in my terminal!
