03:49 pm - GEEK: better command prompt on Windows?
I'm programming in Ruby on Windows. After working on the Mac, I find the Command Prompt counter-intuitive. In particular, I would like to be able to resize the screen size arbitrarily without changing the preferences and use Ctl-C, Ctrl-V cut n paste commands. I'm aware of Monad/Power-shell, but I don't want to have to learn another shell language. Cygwin has the same issues as the Windows prompt. What alternatives do you Windows folk recommend, if anything?
