Custom terminal application in CTC was created by Aleksandar
I understand why did you choose xterm as default terminal application, but now we have much better choices.  iTerm2 is absolutely the best terminal app for Mac OS and Windows Terminal is the very good terminal app for Windows. Also, zsh is the default shell on MacOS since Catalina, so forcing bash is not a good choice anymore. I need zsh with my plugins, themes, aliases...

This is how my shell looks in iTerm:

Some other people would probably be satisfied with default Terminal app from MacOS.

With so many choices, I guess it would be great to have an ability to choose custom terminal app.

xterm is the classic way.
Please don't forget with CT you can build your own Terminal app for any OS,
it's a Programming Studio.

My suggestion was to add ability to use another terminal application instead of xterm when you select HostPC -> Open Terminal in CTC.

As I wrote, xterm was a great choice for CT, but I really think that time for it's retirement has come. XQuartz is still great choice for some other tasks, but not for a simple terminal app.

I can easily add new alias like this to my zsh
alias ct="/usr/local/codetyphon"

and I will never need to use that option from CTC, but that's another story.
