Great article :)
Everyone should know about screen - was one of the first things I discovered after vi :) so useful when you have something running at work and you want to pick it up from home.
I've never got on with screen split as I tend not to split my screen in the way that these sort of apps seem to think is normal :D Currently working at home and don't have an extended display so my Ubuntu laptop is a full sized screen session with about 15 windows, 13 with vim sessions and 2 to run python/LaTeX. <3 screen
The only thing I needed from screen was splitting. I use Terminator for this and it works like a charm.
Note, both screen and tmux does not support truecolor, so you're stuck with 256 colors. At least it was true ~2-3 months ago.
Thanks, I've been using screen for years but I didn't know a few of the tricks you explained. Haven't used tmux yet, I'll wait for your review then ;-)
Thanks for the great article. I've been "using" screen off and on for a bit, but this has already helped me up my game significantly. Appreciate it!
