    Really disappointed that I need to load Linux in a VM because the software package I'm trying to use needs libusb.

    You will be Rich’s best friend forever. He loves the idea of a Quake console as well and talks about it all the time. :P I know for sure this is in our backlog already.

    Some of the suggestions like persistence and multiple sessions and whatnot seem related to the “history between sessions” and tabs/multiplexing ideas. Same technical challenges apply, but sounds possible at some point. :)

    planetarian, I don't like the idea of a fixed-size console that would slide over the top of my existing windows, perhaps the shortcut to bring-forward already existing console Windows could be something like Ctrl-Alt-1 for the first console window, Ctrl-Alt-2 for the second console window, etc. Maybe they could slide on and off the screen, entirely out of view.

    Having a slide-down-and-cover-half-the-screen style console doesn't seem appealing to me. Rather than have a *persistent* console, a console history could fill the screen, it could even be independent for each console. Ctrl-Alt-1 console will show the history of that console, Ctrl-Alt-2 will show it's own history, etc.

    Please blur the content behind the window more. When Command Prompt is on top of text that's a similar size, it becomes exceedingly difficult to read.

    The "start" command already does this. Just run "start /?" to see what it offers. You'll see that you can drop immediately back to a prompt without the command finishing first, or open windows in minimized mode.

    I'd also like to see Ctrl-Z implemented.

    I feel like what would make a great feature is, if tabs are implemented, they can flash different colors or provide from form of feedback about a running or finished command. Either give applications a way to return a "succeeded" or "failed" value with the errorlevel. Color the tab green for succeeded and red for failed and display the errorlevel in the tab title. This is just brainstorming, I'm sure the idea could be much improved but at the very least give us an indication that a command has finished... even if there are no tabs, flash the Window title and taskbar icon.
