Command Prompt / Console / Bash on Ubuntu on Windows

Shrouded in the mists of time, the Windows Console was created. For millenia, geeks and developers wrought their command-line tools but after a while, a great lacking was noticed. And so, legions of ever intrepid command-line mavens migrated to other shells and consoles, ’til but a stalwart few remained.

In Windows 10, with a deep rumbling, the ancient, weary, Windows Console heaved a great sigh and began to tremble. New features appeared, but slow was the (aparrent) progress.

    In my opinion this is a must have for System Admin which work on both Linux and Windows, with Windows 10 as personal OS. Some configuration based on Putty would be great, where you can store commonly used ip-s and fqdns of servers, adding new,…

      There is no margin which makes it difficult to read and copy text - better colour management as you can currently only edit the Main text and background i would dearly love to see themes implemented with some solozied varients
