Just bought the book and started reading today. I’ve seen a few screencasts and such about tmux, and it all looks good. But one thing I’m not yet clear on. Why is the concept of running multiple panes in tmux any different from having multiple panes in iTerm2? Heretofore, I’ve been developing with Sublime Text, but I’ve run a multi-pane terminal for a long time so that I could view, for example, tests, web server, and basic command line all in the same window.
So in short, if someone could explain the advantage of tmux panes over iTerm2 native panes, I would appreciate it. (Perhaps that will become clear as I progress in the book, but I’m impatient. :) Thanks in advance!
