I'm not a UNIX guy so this may be a stupid question. I read the OS X 10.2 has a terminal manager in it. What is this and what's it used for?

Where did you read that?
Jaguar has a much improved Terminal.app, but I'm not aware of any "manager" for it.

I think it may be simple confusion.
The Terminal is the application that one uses to interact with MacOS X from a command line, essentially accessing the underlying Unix core directly. It is extremely powerful, and (can be) extremely hazardous for the uninitiated.
Like Brad, I'm unaware of any 'Manager' for it, since I'm not sure what you'd manage.

I read about it a few days ago on some site that was quoting some UNIX geek about OS X.
I'll try to find the article.
Thanks all for responding.

Well, OS 8 had a terminal manager. It managed terminal emulation.
