Yakuake – the coolest console I’ve ever seen

Yakoake is just a console but there is something different, it comes from nowhere just by pressing a key. Usually by default the key is F12. However you can change this and customize the shortcuts of it anytime you need. I’ve been using Yakoake for few years already and I got used to it so much that when I’m on windows with putty I’m pressing F12 multiple times wondering why this thing is not getting hidden 🙂 I do like the Yakoake and that’s why I decided to write this short review about it.
