    How do you objectively measure the speed of a terminal emulator? I’ve never seen a slowness caused by the terminal emulator, so wouldn’t know what I’m missing.

    • Aaron Kili says:


      For this particular case, we based on the technology it uses —- GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) for rendering, which implements certain optimizations that are not available in many other terminal emulators in Linux.

    Because there aren’t enough Linux terminal emulators, and all of them are so slow that one can hardly work with them. Really, what is it that motivates some to reinvent the wheel over and over again, other than proving that they can? Why not do something original, for a change?

    It’s a POS!
