It would be nice if the cursor for text entry could be pinned at top, and results would propagate down the window with the text entry point remaining on the top line. On laptops the screen is too close to the keyboard, so when the cursor gets to the bottom of the screen users crane their necks to look down at the window. This could be avoided by pinning the text entry point to the top row. Here is a little diagram of what I mean:

+--------------------------------------------+
| User $ --> The point at which commands are entered stays here at the top of the window...
|
| User $ ls
| file1 file2 file3 <-- The results appear below and push earlier results down the window
| as more commands are entered (as opposed to commands moving up)
|
