It's nice. I also like this one (currently using it on Aterm):
It looks "sharp and smooth" although it doesn't use antialiasing.

I just tried it and all I can say is: As soon as it gets "alt-enter
fullscreen mode" ported to the unix version, I'm sold!
[ That's the only bit I enjoy on a Win* system: a fast, configurable
80x24 VT even with nice antialiased fonts :-) ]
Uh, and I was recently told that TeraTerm can set up ssh tunnels
"dynamicly" (no reconnection needed); that would be a killer too...
