Con Some functions still fail
Con Graphics bugs on all platforms
On Windows 10 and Debian 11, Debian 12 the graphics starts bug after some usage. It always happens, even on different computers.
Con Slow with input lag
Sadly, Electron strikes again. The input lag is noticeable and annoying. Startup also takes like 2 seconds or more (On an i7 from 2016 with SSD).
It's huge. The amount of resources it consumes is not justifiable.
Con Cannot remove the default profiles
For example, you installed Arch Linux for Windows Subsystem for Linux some time ago, but now you have deleted it and currently use Ubuntu on WSL. After that, if you decide to try this terminal emulator, you'll find Arch there without an option to remove the profiles already included in Terminus.
Con Unintuitive (alien) smart command-line mode
