Just heard about this: Xiki, like a shell console but better.

Hello:

Does anyone have any experience with this software? Looks nice to me.

Haven't used, but watching their screencasts I can't see anything which I *would* use it for that a traditional terminal emulator couldn't do just as well. I think they lost me when they suggested that more mouse interaction would be a good thing...

Re: Just heard about this: Xiki, like a shell console but better.

maybe i missed something, but it sounds to me as a combination of terminal an editor and the one thing i miss painfully while using terminator is starting an app(gui) and beeing able to go on using this treminal without closing the app..
or is there a way to do this in terminator as well?
because so far im happy using terminator AND geany...
but i will still give it a try because im not afraid of mouse interaction if it makes sense wink

Just put an ampersand after the command and your terminal will still be usable:

geany &

I would also suggest learning to use commands like fg, bg, and jobs to further manipulate this type of behavior.
