Are you talking about the xterm that comes with XFree86? My
friendly neighborhood dict [WordNet (r) 1.7.1 (July 2002)]
defines "garish" as "tastelessly showy". How can something as
plain vanilla as xterm be "garish"? What are your ideas about a
better xterm? I hope you're not suggesting that thing that comes
with OSX?
