I think it would be nice to have a command line that's always visible (and doesn't clutter the screen). GUIs like gvim and ooffice are quicker to open from terminal, since that allows you to skip having to navigate to your file(s) from within the gui.

Is there any way in Gnome to embed a terminal in either of the top or bottom panels?
