Man, the new flagship Dimdows command line is ugly <http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/news/2009/12/windows-server-2008-r2-in-depth.ars/2>. Canâ€™t you choose a better font? Colour scheme? Tabbing? No you canâ€™t, because this command line has to provide its own GUI, and youâ€™re stuck with it. You donâ€™t have a choice of terminal front-ends, separate from the command-line shell itself, ranging from the elaborate KDE Konsole all the way down to full-screen character mode. Not to mention useful alternatives like Screen <http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/screen>.
