It's not everyday that I give Microsoft praise, but damn, the new Windows Terminal is... Surprisingly decent.

Together with WSL2, it allowed me to switch from working in a VM to working fully from Windows.

And with little tweaking of the settings file, it acts exactly the way I like.

Good job creating something modern, almost universal and usable Microsoft!

    Try vscode with wsl development, then you will feel the power

    @notSoCoolGuy Never used VSCode as I'm not a programmer or a developer, I take care of server administration instead :P

    Most of the time, I work remotely through an SSH session anyway. So all that matters is the GUI and usability functions.

    They broke backwards compatibility for underlining text :/

    I agree. WSL2 and Windows Terminal is a nice combo.

    I can now run a full linux subsystem without having to install cygwin and manage/work in it using a native Windows app.

    WSL is looting, they have no merit for stealing decades of open-source work to make their shitty OS barely decent.

    Windows Terminal is awesome, makes sshing to Linux workstation servers so pleasant

    Plus the CRT retro shader effect is awesome

    Windows Terminal is mostly okay. Definitely a huge step-up from anything they've done before.

    WSL2 is going to cause you issues, though. WSL1 has been absolutely great for me (aside from the root escalation vulnerability I found...) WSL2 has been having a TON of issues for people corrupting files and whatnot.

    @junon References?

    I've not run into that but I'd be curious to read more about it.
