Note that there are two terminator terminal emulators... the one the comes
up first in Google searches (the Java one --
http://software.jessies.org/terminator/) and the one that gets installed
when you type "sudo yum install terminator" or "sudo apt-get terminator",
and that is the second terminal emulator link in a google search (

The Java one is of little interest (to me at least) save that it runs on
Windows for those who choose that OS (or have it chosen for them).

The Terminator I know (and the one you get when you install terminator on
your Linux box) is of interest to me primarily for three reasons:

1. It has all the niceties of GNOME Terminal that you don't get by default
in a basic xterm.

2. It offers a few things beyond the GNOME Terminal that make it
compelling, like splitting (like tmux).

3. It's written in Python.

4. There is a plugin system that allows you to write terminal extensions in
Python, see http://www.tenshu.net/2010/04/writing-terminator-plugins.html

5. There are some neat things you can script in Python and use in
terminator. See some of the examples installed in a place similar to
