GLTerminal – Retro Terminal Simulator Updated for Mac OS X Leopard
I’ve been on a bit of a retro and minimalism kick lately, preferring simplified apps that take me back to the good old days of BBS’s and 2400bps modems (ok maybe not the modems), and when I saw that GLTerminal has a new release I was pleased since I can finally run it in a modern version of OS X. It’s basically just a Terminal replacement that uses GL to create the appearance of an oldschool terminal, complete with monitor curvature and all. Everything else works as it should, so if you’re looking for a fullscreen old school alternative for Terminal, or just want something fun to work in for a while, try out GLTerminal.
Still not convinced? Check out this screenshot below, it will make your Mac look like it’s in 1986!
Note: a reader pointed out that if you disable the display curvature, you can use this app to have a high resolution full screen Terminal to work in, something that the default OS X Terminal app does not provide.
