GNU Screen Comments

Just great

Positive Comment by caiocco
about GNU Screen Jan 2015

GNU Screen is just great. Very stable terminal multiplexer that works on almost any Linux based operating system. For those using remote shells frequently, Screen is definitely a joy to use. The learning curve is not very hard, the user has good documentation available and will find tips and configuration resources online without many troubles.
