The Grumpy Editor's guide to terminal emulators

gnome-terminal: also has drag-n-drop (it just requests the text/plain version of whatever was dropped), also highlights URIs and email addresses on the terminal (clicking opens GNOME's preferred URI handler or mailer), and also has --use-factory which reduces the marginal cost of each additional terminal. Unfortunately, it's really slow compared to xterm (as is konsole).

The editor may be interested to know there is another terminal emulator with Tektronix functionality: NCSA Telnet. Yes, I mean the MSDOS (and MacOS) application with it's own TCP stack found here:

My roommate in college had a diskless PC/XT and used NCSA Telnet to work on Unix hosts. He even browsed the web, using the Tektronix terminal for porn^Wgraphics. Pretty amazing piece of software.

And our terminal emulator (admittedly for Windows) also has Tektronix emulation. That's wIntegrate, now owned by IBM.

When we first started looking (early 90s) that was one of things we looked for, so it's had it for about 10 years now :-)

Cheers,
Wol
