I have a pretty exotic setup but I like it a lot. I use Konsole with
Cygwin and the KDE release for Cygwin (that's the only part of KDE that
I use). I love Konsole's tabbed virtual terminals. You can also get
tabbed virtual terminals with mrxvt, which isn't quite so heavyweight,
but Konsole is the most user-friendly terminal I've ever used.
And on top of that, I run emacs, pull up a shell with M-x shell, and
then I can run any program I want, including Python and Jython, and
freely cut and paste between the command line and my editor window.
As far as the beeps go, I go for any "silent bell" option I can find,
and pick the "No sounds" theme in the "Sounds and Audio Devices" control
