Re: How to multitask in X-windows?
If you're starting a new xterm from the shell, type "xterm &" instead
of just "xterm". This will run the new xterm in the background, so
you will be able to execute more commands in that same window later.
Many window managers allow you to start a new xterm from their menus, too.
