Ever heard of ssh? I use those terminals mostly to connect to routers, switches and servers.

Yeah, I have heard of ssh, but thanks for the tip all the same. Putty is decent, but not outstanding. But I use terminals mostly for development stuff, and on Windows, that's completely lacking. And yes, I also do Windows development, so I know what I'm talking about and I've tried all the options.

At least putty works. We are talking about GNOME here right? I'll take Putty over the default GNOME's terminal any day of the week: at least putty does not spend more CPU resources to show me the gcc's command line then it takes for gcc to compile complex C++ code!

When I see that my terminals fully hogs the CPU core just to show the commands executed by make I weep.

P.S. Just don't try to compare Linux port of Putty with anything: I'm not sure who did that port but it's awful, yes, I know. We are talking about Putty on Windows here.
