A decent windows console

I have just stumbled upon ConEmu, and have to admit I'm impressed.

As a developer, I have to use command lines a bunch, so they should not feel like a burden to use.

The windows command prompt looks behaves terribly bad.  Honestly, is re-sizing it freely too much to ask ?

ConEmu can incorporate other windows as its tabs, so you can have putty, cmd.exe and others as tabs in the same main window. I tend to also have vim in there.

ConEmu allows me to freely resize and even maximize the windows command prompt (take that Console2!).

Here's how it looks:

Take it for a spin, it might just be a life-changer for you ;)
