I -want- to like iTerm. I really do. I want the 256 color support in
the terminal. So, periodically I download it and see if it passes
muster. The two issues I have pretty consistently are:
1. It is noticeably slower to render than Terminal.app.
2. It occasionally crashes on me.
I don't really have any more information than that -- you asked why I
have a bad perception of it, so there it is. Maybe they'll add 256
color support to Terminal.app in snow leopard. That'd make me happy.
