The one killer app for me out of KDE has been the Konsole application. This neat terminal program allowed the user to have multiple terminals in one window, switchable by pressing SHIFT-[LEFT|RIGHT]. I’m more than happy with it and would recommend it to any KDE user. Unfortunately I’m not running kwin or a KDE environment and didn’t like the idea of all those kdeinit processes running simply for a terminal emulator, so I went searching!I found Multi Gnome Terminal last night and it’s nice, fast, and slim. The only problem I’ve noticed so far is that backspace doesn’t work properly when logging into a telnet session 🙁
