Benchmarks "Linux has an abundance of excellent terminal applications. Interestingly, I could not find any decent comparison of their text display performance. Since I use the command line a lot, I want text output that is as fast as possible. When you compile a large project, you don't want the console output to be the limiting factor. I took the burden on me to do a comprehensive comparison of the text through of all possible terminals."

Just for fun I did the test with the stock BeOS terminal. It didn't do too badly, ranging from 1.08 - 1.25 seconds. It does smoothly scroll through all the text though.
