[quote]I run urxvt and konsole, both have their place, but konsole is my favorite because of the ctrl+shift+v paste function which helps alot when using wget to grab tarballs from the net.
Although yakuake is an awesome konsole emulator which calls a terminal from the top of the screen, it is much easier to call and hide for when it is needed.
i've never used yakuake, and your description (and its name) intrigued me, so I just installed it - pretty cool idea. I'm more Gnomish, though, so I may have to find another way to do that...[/quote]
For gnome there is a project called guake, which is a yakuake clone built on gtk. http://guake.org/
