Console Emulation for Gnome

February 24th, 2012 4 comments

Once upon a time I used KDE. It was a nice and peaceful time of adventures and magic until the eldritch demons ‘eye-candy’ and ‘feature-delusion’ brought terror and doom. Many of us fled into the wastelands of the Gnome, looking for salvation. It was a life of privation on a better path of desktop environments. Often I found myself looking back to a nice tool called Yakuake, allowing me to show and hide a terminal on every desktop by a single key-stroke; what a powerful magic it was… But prayers didn’t remain unheard and Tilda (‘first person shooter console likeness terminal’, Tilda manpage) was forged be the almighty GTK (2.x).
