    Listed below are some other popular Linux terminal emulators:

    Tilda: a slide-down GTK+ terminal emulator similar to that of Guake.
    LXterminal: the default terminal of Linux distributions based on LXDE.
    ROXTerm: powerful and useful terminal emulator built with many features for Linux power users.

    xfce4-terminal DOES have transparency background. You can active it from Edit->Preferences->Appearence->Background->TRANSPARENT BACKGROUND.

      I use XFCE terminal daily and couldn’t believe that the writer said it didn’t have transparency settings. These writers should stick to things they know something about.

    What about terminology? Offers lots of features including like rewrapping whrn window resizing….

    missing terminology, it lets you have multiple terminals per a screen and tabs plus more.

    You’re missing:
    XTerm (obviously) – fast, feature complete and de facto standard
    Terminology – fast and nicely themable terminal
    st – minimalist choice for advanced powerusers

    Nice list, thanks for sharing. I would recommend the addition of Terminology terminal because of its fantastic features including the possibility to play a video or show an image in the terminal itself.
