Sliding means I got the terminal always in background and I can call it with a shortcut, and it will slide down from the top of the screen like in Quake (which why the most known terminal implementing it is called guake).

Splitting terminal means I can seen in one terminal tab several shells, like with screen or tmux. But I can also take the focus on each part of the terminal by clicking on it, not just with a 4 keys keyboard shortcut. Which terminator let me do.

Is there a terminal that features both on Linux ? Even something I can pay for.

Yakuake, although it's KDE-based.

How does it not? Yakuake is a drop-down terminal like guake, can be split, these can be navigated by mouse or keyboard shortcut. – Sparhawk Jan 11 '13 at 5:42
Then you should be careful to explain it or provide a screen shot least for it. :) – avirk Jan 11 '13 at 8:19
I accept it since it answers the question perfectly, although after testing this software, the ergonomics is terrible. Plus as you said it's KDE which prevents it to integrate anywhere else properly. Anyway, thanks. – e-satis Jan 11 '13 at 10:20
@avirk Well, the question had certain requirements, which yakuake fulfilled. So I didn't think I should have to repeat the requirements listed by the question! I agree that a screenshot would have been nice, but I didn't have time to provide one, so I thought an adequate answer was better than none at all. – Sparhawk Jan 11 '13 at 10:23

Now Terminator itself natively supports Guake like functionality.

Refer to the following article.

The article is quite old, and claims that the Guake like functionality is not there in the release candidate. But, the feature has now been included. All the other info relating to setting up the feature in Terminator are still relevant.
