After a thorough 2-minute evaluation, I can give you the following feedback:
1. Good work.
2. Super fast.
3. Cut and paste in a Unixoid terminal for Cygwin finally conforms to
Windows norms (AKA "The One True Way"). That alone is worth it.
4. I wasn't getting color from ls, but that appears to be a
termcap/terminfo/wrong-bash-invocation issue, as your screenshots clearly
show color support.
5. It needs a regular Windows installer.
5a. I'm good with Windows installers. You want I should whip one up for
This will likely become my default terminal unless a more thorough
evaluation turns up some showstopper. Excellent work!
