Two years ago I would've never guessed that I would be completely hooked on using the terminal. However, after moving to an operating system that had a decent terminal underneath I soon became a command line junky. Time to improve the retarded beast that they call 'cmd.exe' in Windows by adding some real terminal experience.

Yes, I'm aware of PowerShell. But the 'yet another syntax' is not for me.

The thing that annoys me the most is the inability to easily copy and paste text. On OS/X I can do this through CMD+C, CMD+V, and keep CTRL+C for terminating programs; on Linux I can use CTRL+SHIFT+C, but on Windows:
  1. Right-click and choose 'Mark'
  2. Drag selection
  3. Right click
  4. Go somewhere, right click again
  5. And choose 'Paste'
