    I've looked at what others have done to find it, and I cannot find my terminal. I've used it before and now it's just gone....

    HELP! :confused:

    It generally resides in your /Applications/Utilities/ folder. Have you tried using spotlight to find it?

    After Spotlighting it and bringing up the app drag the icon to your dock where you can always find it.

    If that fails hop in a cab and ask to be taken to the airport. ;)

    Press command + space and type "ter" it should appear at the tip of the list, then press enter .:)

    You could download iTerm, which is basically the same thing.

    I don't really like the idea of a third party terminal app. Terminal has far too much power for that.

    This post makes so little sense I don't even know what to make of it. It's an open-source project, so if it was really doing something malicious someone would have caught it by now.

    I still don't like the idea of that. What's wrong with Terminal.app?

    Nothing, but if you're missing it and don't have quick access to a restore disc, then iTerm is the same thing.

    Out of curiosity, where is it?
    It may help other people when they're searching.

    As stated above, this is nonsense. Terminal has no more 'power' (read: permission/rights) than any other application. If you think it can something malicious, you shouldn't trust any other application that you download.
