I can - I'm nailed to Eterm for a very sad reason. Eterm displays using
the the fixed font (aliased), with a fake dropshadow that is just a
black 1px offset of the text.

Unfortunately using a terminal based on GTK does funny things to my eyes
because the text appears too flat and I can't look at anti-aliased text
all day. Also something feel constantly "off" because the font is wrong.

I've been looking at this font and rendering 9:00-5:30, 5 days a week
for about 4 years now. Leaving it will be tricky.

However I am sorely lacking Unicode support in Eterm, and it's generally

If someone could make xfce4-terminal output fonts like Eterm with
Unicode support I would probably love them forever :-)
