I prefer to have separate Terminal App windows rather than tabs. If I open a new windows then it always wants to cascade and I can never get it to go fullscreen.

Solution?

Just tried this with 10.4 and it seems to work. Open Terminal, maximize the window, go to File -> Use Settings As Defaults.

⌘-N creates new terminals maximized. Quitting completely and firing it back up it comes up maximized.

Ok. I did this and it still will open a little further down from the bar... Annoying. I'll give iTerm a try. Cheers. –  gyaresu Aug 2 '09 at 7:41

@Sean Bright has the right answer for Terminal.app, but I'd like to mention that if you replace it with iTerm, you get all kinds of good stuff that Terminal doesn't have, like Bookmarks and a full-screen, no menubar mode that's really good for scaring the hell out of non power-users who aren't expecting it. Excellent value for office jokery! ;-)
