Terminator – no not the movie.

Yes I love AAAnold too but this about terminals not terminators. Do you use lots of tabbed terminals and end up flipping back and forth. Terminator can make your life much easier. I was able to use this on Ubuntu with just a few commands but on Mac it took a little more doing in that I had to install Fink. Fink worked whereas the parallel operation on mac ports did not work. In short you can split a single terminal into multiple windows using a few simple commands. If you work on lots of systems simultaneously this is a no brainer. This along with pdsh can make your life much easier at the command line.
