The console is by far the most executed program in my pc, so it's worth to spend some time testing alternatives.
Konsole and terminal (xfce) are not the kind of app I'm looking for, as they steal shortcuts (I'm sure it's configurable), so for some time I've been using aterm,much faster than xterm (I don't need xterm 'extra' features), but it has some refreshing issues.
Now I've discovered rxvt-unicode. It's scriptable in perl, and it has some cool features, like scrollback search.
That's what I'm using atm, but suggestions are welcome
Regarding shell matters, I switched from bash to zsh some time ago, and I'm really satisfied with the change.
PS: Anyone used wmii? opinions?
