It’s way too small. 80 x 25 in 2009? Utterly ridiculous.
But, as I heard before, everything can be solved in Linux, it just takes half an hour. I ended up at Maligree’s Weblog, who offers not one but 3 solutions to the problem, one for bash gurus, one for config wizards and another one for a mysterious Mister Rightclickalot.
I did all three and I’m a happy man.
