RE: Backwards typing under load

Using M-x shell inside Emacs for win32 works quite well too, even
on Win 9x and Me.  Be sure to set up your shell-file-name and
explicit-shell-file-name to use bash though, per the cygwin FAQ:

I've found Emacs to be the best console window replacement on Win32.
(It's useful for other things too of course ;-> )

Like rxvt or other xterms, you can of course see the type-ahead
information while the prior command is running, and I've never
had emacs reverse the characters.  Unlike rxvt or other xterms
you can even use M-s to regexp search your prior commands, or
use M-p and M-n to browse through them and edit the command
even _before_ the prior command finishes and returns to a prompt.

for a version of rxvt that does not use (full-blown) X11.
(the whole binary download is like 300K)

(this is especially nice to use for ppl running Win9* with a non-english
kbd that have problems with deadkeys and cygwin. with rxvt you can just
use the keyboard switcher as it is a true Win32 app, no

Well, I don't know if it runs on Win ME though (it does run on Win9* and
