	I second that. 

	Since before Fedora, I've been running gnome-terminal with 
several tabs, background colors chosen both to be easy on my arthritic 
eyeballs, and to contrast with one another : user on own machine is soft 
green, root is a soft blue with deep blood-red letters (deep enough not 
to blast the eyes, but discernibly red), user running elsewhere over ssh 
or scp is a soft pink, root/ssh lavender, etc., etc.

	All this is as easy to do as it is convenient -- and helps keep 
me from doing the wrong thing in the wrong place under the wrong 

	All praise to the gnome-terminal developers!
