 I use fluxbox with aterm and editing $HOME/.fluxbox/apps allows me to
have it borderless.  At times, I will make it totally transparent with a
fade for an unused window, so it looks as if it's just loose text
floating around my screen.  There will be a slightly darker area where
the unfocused window sits. 

Although rxvt allows similar effects, I find aterm faster--and that is
totally subjective, no I cannot prove it.  :)  So, I'm casting my vote
for aterm.  Kev, Eterm allows borderless, regardless of WM?

Heh, maybe we should start having polls on the website.  

And, ~I~ like zsh as my shell.
