Is it? From my experience, the windows terminal is both less useful and simply slower to use than any Unix terminal. But it certainly gets the job done.

There are definitely better terminals, even on Windows. Still, this is what I get paid for

Ah, I get it. Yeah, for our Windows servers I like git bash.

Our environment is locked down enough that git bash isn’t an option for me. I like it when I get the chance, though!

The Linux simulation you see when you open Git Bash is actually MSYS2 which you can find right here

You can do really cool things with it, like using the GCC tool-chain right inside of Windows.
