GNOME terminal, also identified as gnome-terminal, is a terminal emulator written by Havoc Pennington and others. It is part of the free software GNOME desktop environment software suite. This allows users of GNOME to execute commands using a real UNIX shell whilst still remaining on their graphical desktop. Along with this comes the benefits of being able to move the window, resize it and shift it to another desktop, just like any other window in GNOME.
