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."

I have another question: Does the text output speed really affect compiling speed that much? I mean, If youŽd want to know hof fast gcc works in a respective terminal app, why not, uh, time THAT and compare those results? WouldnŽt that be more informative on this matter?
