http://lifehacker.com/5857540/the-best-terminal-emulator-for-windows This article recommends Console, a free app. In "The Competition" section, we see: "If you're a *really* advanced user that requires a powerful terminal every day, you might want to try out *Take Command <http://jpsoft.com/index.html>*. It's very expensive ($99), but also insanely powerful, adding more than 140 new commands and 460 internal functions and variables to the standard Windows command prompt (not to mention a built-in file manager and debugger). It's definitely geared more toward developers than end users, but it's worth a mention for its sheer power alone." -- Jim Cook 2011 Monday: 4/4, 6/6, 8/8, 10/10, 12/12 and 5/9, 9/5, 7/11, 11/7.
