I was not aware of RoyalTS when I've started writing this tool. This tool was written in Delphi few years ago and I wanted to have a new version written in .Net so with the help of a friend we wrote it and decided to publish it. I've installed RoyalTS and it looks nice. The features are similar. One thing I've noticed that we support full screen which means you can work as in Remote Desktop Connection client but still get the tabs when you move your mouse at the top of the screen.
There's always a place for another good tool. Hope you'll enjoy it.

I continued checking RoyalTS and found out that it is lacking with one important feature that Terminals support. We call it "Grab Input". When you work on a terminal window windows keys work on this window and not on your desktop so you can actually use Alt + Tab to navigate between windows and all other keys. It's quite like in VMWare tools if you ever used VMWare. When you exit the terminal windows automatically your input moves to your desktop.
