Linux shell on windows

Coming from a Linux background to Windows is very shocking in one respect: The command line!

Windows shell for command execution stands nowhere when compared to Linux.
Fortunately, there are tools to help you get the same experience. Two tools required to do this are:
  1. Cygwin and
  2. Console2

Download and install both of them.
Run console and change the SHELL under Edit->Settings to C:\Work\cygwin\Cygwin.bat (Or where you installed cygwin)

You get the cygwin running in a multi-tabbed Linux-line environment!!!
