byobu basically is a wrapper for screen or tmux and is available via the repositories. You don’t have to mess around with the various screen/tmux options anymore since byobu provides an easy to use interface.
Added bonus: byobu displays status notifications like time, RAM usage or uptime in its footer. One can add or remove more notifications by pressing F9 and selecting “Toggle status notifications”.
