    With UnxUtils [sf.net], vim [vim.org], and Vanilla Perl [vanillaperl.org] and some color/font changes, life with CMD.EXE has become a managable approximation of a Unix command shell.

    • Wow. I don't know how anyone who has used a decent terminal emulator and shell can consider cmd.exe a manageable approximation.
      • When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!

      • By fiddling with the font/colour stuff, as dagolden mentions, I can't say that I've ever managed to make it GOOD, but fortunately you can make it a LOT "less bad".
    • I use UnixUtils as well. I really wish Windows had a shell equivalent built in. You deal with it. I haven't ventured into the Vanilla Perl world yet (maybe when it gets out of alpha I will look). I do use Vim on everything I can install it on. Ah Vim, how did I work without you for so long.
