5 One of the first utils i install on a new build. Love the transparency when reading what repository to use form the webpage underneath it. Can have multiple terminals by clicking on icon in bottom right corner.

5 It's awesome because at this moment there's no app that has function like this. I hope that the developer will make guake more flexible by allowing it to be located anywhere as expected.

1 Not configurable; also wastes MOST of my screen. I can put a hot-key on most things; so no special value to me.

4 Not mocking this, quite the opposite, it's good to have when underlying window manager is lacking (precisely WM, desktop environment itself need not to change to fix the shortcomings, for example replacing Gnomes official WM with another, fluxbox, if you know how to configure it correctly, is fine example). What I mean is that IMHO a WM without ability to assign a hotkey with hide/show action to a specific applications window - or specific window only - is very lacking. Proper WM should be able to let you define hotkeys for groups of windows as well as any one individual window. This program solves the problem only for one type of application, but it does just that perfectly fine so it deserves good rating. Also, it only solves the hide/show action part, while the lacking of WM is not that, it's lack of any action that however is available for the currently active window. I have this installed, for I have need to work on DE+WM other than my default (i3) now and then, and am grateful for it.

4 This is more practical and neat than having several terminal windows lying around on the desktop. It would be nice, however, to be able to save and restore the terminals, or at least the name of the terminals. Why allow user to rename the terminals but not allow them the option to save it?

5 This is a must have for the cronic-customizer. Just hit f12 and a transparent terminal comes up so you can apt-get install to your hearts content. Fully customizable to fit whatever style you have at the moment. Should be a default.

5 Ohne Guake wäre mein Linux Mint nichts wert. Ich hoffe, es findet den Weg in die Standardinstallation. So hat man mit F12 jederzeit ein Terminalfenster und ist handlungsfähig, selbst wenn man mal keine Maus oder ein Touchpad zur Hand hat. Tip: Rechts anklicken und automatisch mitstarten lassen.
