quadkonsole – multiple consoles to make your life easier

First lets install quadkonsole:

yum install quadkonsole

Now, to launch the quadkonsole, just type quadkonsole in the run box (appears with Alt+F2).

You will by default see 4 console windows in single window but you can change that with command line options like so:

quadkonsole --rows 4 --columns 4

This will initiate windows with 16 consoles. How cool is that.
