  • I too was frustrated by the lack of a good terminal program to replace Windows' SecureCRT, but iTerm finally won me over with its extremely flexible key mappings. Any keys that don't work the way you expect, you can almost surely remap. I also like the ability to move sessions in and out of tabs, and "Send Input to all Tabs" is a great lazy way to handle repetitive tasks.

    For editing, I use the Carbon Emacs builds at http://www.porkrind.org/emacs/ [porkrind.org] - many varieties of both 22 and 23 are available. Never had a problem with cut and paste - content goes to and from the Mac clipboard seamlessly.

    And I assume you've heard this, but if you value productivity, install and learn Quicksilver (or one of its competitors) immediately.

    Once you've got Quicksilver and Emacs set up, much of the rest of the "OS" becomes much less relevant. :)
