replacing OSX default terminal with iTerm

The default terminal shipped with OS X is far from perfect. iTerm is a very good option to make your terminal experience happier. Unlike gnome-terminal, which will need you to have MacPorts or Fink, it is standalone, you can have it installed in a minute. It is easy to use as well. The only thing I need to mention is that the profile is managed in bookmarks. You can have a few bookmarks, and each bookmark can have different Keyboard, Graphics and Terminal profiles assigned to it.
