All the important terminal emulators: xterm, rxvt, gnome-terminal, konsole
support 256 color terminals. Things like emacs22 or vim7 work much better on 256
color terminals.
Comment 1 Thomas E. Dickey 2007-01-14 20:24:40 EST
On the other hand, many applications do not work with 256
colors (also ncurses won't do this unless you bump to the
ABI 6 changes).  It's probably a good thing (except for
efficiency) to deliver 256color-capable terminals, but not
a good idea to force everyone to change to use it.
