    Ignore everyone hear who didn't say PowerShell. Seriously, it's better than bash so don't even.

    I use it along with ConEmu.

    I definitely prefer Zsh to PowerShell, but Zsh would only run on a Unix like environment like WSL or Cygwin, both of which are not nearly as nice as running it on a natively supported environment, so for Windows the best shell is probably PowerShell optionally in combination with ConEmu.

    With cmder you can run multiple shells, including powershell

    Used conEmu before, but fancy cmder better

    Ok... I have several questions (I'm a noob with this things but I want to understand it). What is cmder, PowerShell and all those things you all mentioned? Are those Command Interprets? Because I have to do a Command Interpret for school but I have no idea about those things and I don't understand what I've read so far, also my teacher never teach us anything... (Sorry for this, but I'm really desperate).

    If you like cygwin you have to check out babun which is a really good wrapper for it https://babun.github.io

    If you're talking about the interface, try ConEmu. It's very nice, though kind of hideous out of the box. Somme tweaking, though, and it's beautiful.

    You could also checkou hyper. You can nearly tweak and customize every part of it.

    Powershell and ConEmu. Never use that caveman cmd.exe. You could also get the chocolatey package manager and install openssh + GNU Coreutils

    The funny part is that I have installed it on my Windows machine. They removed the download link.

    I used cmder when i did my coding on windows, i didnt like the responsiveness when in a large git folder due to the status checking. Now i use terminator with zsh + ohmyzsh and i definitely recommend it. Programming on Unix is way more efficient and easy. I'm not a windows hater; i use it too, but every tool has its uses.
