Re: [PLUG] Multiple Terminal Programs

While that looks neat I think I would just get confused by it.  I too have to have many terminals open but I run a windows desktop at work.  My solution is to use cygwin to run an x server on windows and use ssh -Y to open a gnome terminal from an ubuntu server virtual machine.  I like gnome-terminal and it's tab feature to keep track of many boxes, but with one tab at a time like firefox's tabs.  I have my gnome-terminal set to blue background with white text because it's easy on the eyes.

FYI to the list.

I had been looking for a single program that would allow me to have multiple
terminals open in a single window.    I want to be able to ssh into multiple
servers and monitor them from a single session.

Well, just by chance I stumbled onto terminator
(http://gnometerminator.blogspot.com/p/introduction.html) and QuadKonsole &
QuadKonsole4 (https://www.linux-apps.com/p/1127778/) for KDE.

Terminator seems the more actively maintained, but is more gnome-ish (while I
prefer KDE).

If you've ever wanted to link into multiple systems, these are very nice
programs to explore.
