[I have not yet found an acceptable multi-screen replacement for
Terminal.] Given the small OLPC screen, what I do is start two
instances of Terminal - then use one to "read" information (i.e.,
for 'reference') and the other to "write" what I'm working on (i.e.,
for 'output'). This usually involves a lot of navigating back and
forth between these two Terminal instances. "Cycling around" seems
very cumbersome (and it actually is time-consuming). Maybe one of
these years I'll write some scripts to 'select' each instance, then
attach them to keyboard keys. That should give me good "operator
performance" - a single keypress and I get to a specific instance.
