CMD replacement with some nice features

Just found out how much I dislike the standard Windows XP command prompt (cmd.exe).

So, found project named Console. Here's brief list of its features:
  1. Support for tabs
  2. Transparency (don't think anyone _needs_ this really, but, anyway - that's a feature)
  3. Can make long lines unwrapped. But did not find a way to scroll to the right :)
  4. Good fonts from the start :)
  5. Lines selection model instead of box selection model in cmd.
And that's really strange:
  1. Yes, it supports resizing, but does not support maximization. I found this weird

Generally speaking, this is useful, especially when used together with UnixUtils.
