Just great

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.
