Maybe I should just take this directly to AskMeFi, but let’s try here first. Is there a terminal application for Mac OS X that doesn’t suck? Terminal.app is horribly slow. iTerm is less slow, but is going to require dinking around to get the keyboard settings right. The least sucky thing I’ve found is running X11.app and using plain old xterms, but that seems like a lot of overhead, really.

All I want a fast, lightweight terminal that gives me the same keyboard environment I would have sitting in front of a Unix machine…
