  • I've been using iTerm with good old terminal based emacs and vi and it has been working pretty well. I was using Aquamacs for a while, but I ended up with a desktop full of buffers and found it easier to keep them hidden in iTerm.

    One really annoying thing about running emacs in the terminal is that you have to use ESC for the meta key. But I've been able to trick out emacs using perlnow and an autocomplete elisp (https://www.redhotpenguin.com/svn/emacs/) setup so while there are some nits in the system, my overall productivity using it is pretty good.

    I've fallen in love with iTerm though. I just wish that I could resize the window using the keyboard instead of having to expend great effort with the one button mouse on the laptop to resize it to fit the screen vertically. I've tried Parallels and it takes up too many resources to be effective on the laptop, but you may find differently on the desktop. There are some annoyances with it (can't cut and paste from the mac buffer to the virtual machine), which they may have ironed out in 3.0 (but my year of upgrades doesn't cover 2.x to 3 :( )
