For those who are heavy users of consoles/terminals such as cygwin/bash, PyCmd/Console2...I just discovered this great project: https://code.google.com/p/conemu-maximus5

I have been using Console2 for years, its great, but conemu has so much more features, AND is its in very active development (unlike console2). I have switched already.

Thanks for the pointer. Google led me to an interesting review of ConEmu-Maximus5 vs Take Command (a paid product; I'm not affiliated with its vendor) http://jpsoft.com/blogs/2012/04/windows-console-replacements-part-6-take-command-and-conemu/

The reviews made by jpsoft are not really fair but give you some hint on what is a command shell replacement. Take Command is a fantastic tool and also a complete shell/script environment...
ConEmu is a console replacement and also a tabed gui manager, the graphical part of TakeCommand.

ConEmu even if it is not 100% stable works OK for tests i did. I can have total commander inside a panel, powershell console, tcc/le console ....;) And as said by jmwap it it the best free candidate for now to replace Console².

of course, a comparison by the vendor is to be taken with a grain of salt. That review is about 4 months old, and at least one of the checks that Take Command has in that comparison and conemu does not (Customize menu accelerator keys) conemu has already. ¨
Even more important for me, the developer of conemu is super active, and very friendly, he replies to bug reports and improvement right away, and I am pretty sure conemu has features that take command does not (just look at the configuration window...

For me it replaced console2 after a couple of days of testing.

cheers
