"Terminal multiplexing" seems like an obscure function until you've seen it in action.

For many years, GNU Screen was the main game in town. It's a great productivity tool for those of us who spend all day in terminals and using a keyboard more than a mouse. Its beloved features include detaching sessions, sharing screens, server-side scrollback and logging, and a customizable status line.

In recent years tmux has been gaining popularity as a lighter-weight alternative serving many of the same roles. It also adds individually detachable and reattachable windows, easier "follow the leader", and more.

Let's watch them fight it out and see which one comes out the winner.

Jon develops mostly server-side web applications using free software, especially Perl, Ruby, and PostgreSQL. He is CTO at End Point, a distributed development company, and lives in Teton Valley, Idaho. Jon prefers keyboarding to mousing. His other technical interests include Python, IPv6, security, Linux, OpenBSD, and Android.
