If you have ever wanted to drop to a full shell in a window and do things like run ssh, full-color bash, you should check out Thomas Wana's Vim-Shell patch: http://www.wana.at/vimshell/

It currently only works on text-mode Vim 7.0.

CommentsEdit

See :help shell-window. This feature, while available, is discouraged.

The ConqueShell plugin provides an interactive shell in a buffer, without needing to patch Vim.
