The new Windows Terminal is out and damn they advertise a terminal like a phone 😄

    I think it's nice. Can't wait until it replaces cmd.exe (although I understand that might not fully happen).

    Well they did advertise a phone at some point too. How did that turn out?
    Maybe they advertised it as a terminal?

    I have my doubts.

    In true Microsoft fashion, even the video doesn't work!

    @Ubbe I think COMMAND.exe is still there. If that's the case, cmd has no chance of going anywhere :)

    Yes, the terminal is nice. Still cmd and powershell as the backend though.

    The new terminal with WSL is the only way to get something done on Windows imo.

    It is worth the hype tbh. It really is the best way to use WSL and makes multiple terminals much easier to get up with the panes. I use WSL for working on remote machines over SSH and it finally feels like a proper modern interface.

    Yeah but until I can set it as my default terminal, it's not useful to me!
