Console

11:42 pm hacking

I’ve been using Windows a lot more since I went to work at Medsphere, and the one thing that bothers me most frequently is the lack of a very useful terminal. I’ve got the Cygwin rxvt terminal installed, and it’s been pretty good except that I sometimes have like three or four of them open and Windows doesn’t have virtual desktops like I have on Linux, so it’s a pain to find the terminal I want. But now I ran across this open source terminal app called Console. It supports tabs and works with any shell program, like the default crappy Microsoft shell or with Cygwin’s bash. It also lets you customize the colors and the opacity of the window, which is not as big of a deal but possibly still of interest.
