I happen to run a nice fast machine, (Dual Athlon 1800+, 2GB RAM, running Gentoo), and I have a need for speed.
My comment on this whole deal is that though very functional, Gnome-Terminal and Konsole are both slow to start. I've found that for me, the best blend of speed, readability with default colors, and functionality is aterm. (with -rv, 'cuz I like black background on my terms)
I've got a big monitor, and as such, I don't tend to care for tabbed Terminal sessions - just the ability to launch another one very quickly to be shoved over to one side of the screen. Aterm launches very quickly off my XFCE launch bar.
