"Byobu is a Japanese term for decorative, multi-panel
screens that serve as folding room dividers. As an open source
project, Byobu is an elegant enhancement of the otherwise
functional, plain, practical GNU Screen. Byobu includes an enhanced
profile and configuration utilities for the GNU screen window
manager, such as toggle-able system status notifications.
"Let's look at the information Byobu provides. The bottom row of
Byobu contains, from left to right, your Distribution logo and
name, uptime, load, cpu frequencies, ram amount and usage, and the
date. You could have different info, like total number of processes
or network statistics, these info are highly configurable."
