>>52538483 tmux it's pretty much a superset of screen; as far as i know there are no good reasons to use screen aside from familiarity, and even then you can bind ctrl-a as your prefix and use it as you would screen for most things
>>52539191 what about persistence? my primary use case for tmux is keeping a lot of ssh connections/scrollback histories alive and easily accessable, the pane/tab management stuff is largely an afterthought
>>52538483 I tried both. Went back to screen for the little use cases I have (when I ssh into mah server). If I remember correctly they don't work exactly the same way, as in "not the same features". So I have like one vertical split and then cycle through the 6 other hidden windows in the right pane while leaving the left pane as it is for example. I remember that not being that easy / straight forward in tmux or not possible. But screen really seems old and crufty. It's already obvious because there's not easy converse to "C-a tab". If you want to rotate backwards, you have to tab all the way through again. C-a Shift <Tab> would be really useful for example.
Copy mode in screen is also nice sometimes since you can't always use the mouse. Already uses vi keybindings so I like it a lot.
