GNOME Terminal, Alacritty, Kitty, XTERM, Terminator, Guake Terminal, Tilix, Hyper, Tilda, eDEX-UI, Konsole, Yakuake, and many more. I hadn't even heard of many of these before searching for terminal emulators to add to this list. Which terminal emulators have you used and why?
I'm the kind of person who doesn't like spending a lot of time with configurations. I don't have a dot files repo. I don't even have a personal vimrc file. I tend to just use whatever comes with my Linux installation.
This is a lie these days, actually, because I just realised that I copy over my home directory to the new computer. And I always install tmux.
I use GNOME Terminal right now because I run Ubuntu and it comes with the OS. I don't even really know what I've used before but I haven't experienced any notable difference between them. They've all been pre-installed on whatever Linux version I used at the time.
Is it worth getting used to another terminal? Which one? Why?
