Ubuntu – Multiple shells in one window

command linegnome

The default behavior of my shell window is to create tabs. I can switch between those tabs but only one tab can be visible at a time.

Is it possible to open multiple shells in the same window? E.g. have a window split 4-ways with each pane running it's own instance of a shell. I would prefer this over tabs since I can run my shell window full-screen at see 4 shells at the same time.
