I highly recommend Guake, it is a terminal application that works as an overlay instead of having its own window. You can set a shortcut to hide and show the overlay. I honestly can't work with normal terminal windows anymore, I need Guake (iTerm2 with some tweaks can work like it on Mac)
Oh this sounds cool, I'll check it out. I have my terminal keybound so its super easy to pull up but I do have to minimize and move it around a lot.
One more vote for Guake. In addition to that, try Tmux+Byobu+Guake.
