My daily work before joining gameloft is mainly with linux environment and like another linux user I use terminal emulator frequently. However I must admit that there are big cons when we use terminal for daily activity, the main issue is our discover-ability of function. In GUI paradigm discover-ability is not a question, if we don’t know about a feature -we probably need- just take a look at App UI and we will find something. We hardly rely to experience and search engine to know a feature we need and we haven’t known.
That’s why I’m really thrilling with http://finalterm.org/ , it will help us to maximize our unix terminal’s powers.
