As a fellow console lover I suggest you should check out tilda. It's a great alternative to the standard console with lots of easy to configure options, it's always the first thing I grab from the repo's after installing a new distro. I normally set it up so that it launches hidden on start-up, hit a function key and it rolls down in all it borderless, transparent glory.
