On Android, Termux >_ is my goto. I've been trying to do fastboot commands on my 6T to another phone, but still working through connection issues.

On the Linux side, whatever comes with the distro, in this case, Mint 19.1.

I am very satisfied with Terminator on FreeBSD. It is a very good standard terminal, with many functions and customization.

The only downside is that in my Conky I keep seeing Python 3.9 starting up when I open Terminator. So they can probably make Terminator faster and more efficient by replacing Python with Common Lisp/Chez Scheme/Nim/Haskell. Then it would be absolutely perfect.
