I have lived long enough to see windows having proper console. I feel so old now.

The ONLY reason I am using macos is terminal. I could have used Linux but it ain't work for me with the missing photoshop, final cut etc. I consider to return to windows.

You're open sourcing this thing. ok. Wait, OMG I see a debugger! Is that windows debugger!? It is! Are you open sourcing that?? No...thumbs down.

Multiple tabs, even though there is tmux Dynamic background transparency and blur color themes, styles, emojis looks like they have got their priorities straight.

It's just funny how Microsoft tries to shoehorn Linux into Windows. They seriously think, that adding autistic terminal ricing and a POSIX complient shell to Windows will make people switch back from Linux. Completely missing the point of FOSS, Repositories and the absence of Telemetry in Linux, which is why people actually switch away. Tone deaf in my opinion. Embrace, Extend, Extinguish. Mark my words.

I wish MS Visual Studio gets this slick UI. Also, it's 2019 but VS still doesn't have a good theme editor! However I really like that Microsoft is taking this path towards renovation.

Not impressed. The command line should have been obsolete decades ago. Ironically, the best text based console ever made was Apple's MPW. You can select a command you already typed and reexecute it. Copy and paste was a no brainer. You can also save your console session as a transcript you can reload later.

Needs linux support

I just joined the Windows Insider Program for this and cloned the terminal repository. I encountered a few hiccups prior to a successful build, but I got it deployed!
Edvin Tabakovic (1 day ago)
tallgeese1 Ooooo bad mistake. A lot of games and some programs are not going to work properly in beta versions of windows as it’s not fully supported through the latest graphics drivers.... now the only way to get out of it is to reinstall windows. You made a big mistake

Command line in 21st century... Sorry Marty, we fucked up.
With all do respect and considering that this is a move 'forward' for MS, how is this different from a customizable λ - Cmder? I am personally scared thinking all the conflicts that might exist in a non-segregated env! where Wnidows and Linux will live ... together. I have to admit thought that this is a move forward for MS! Great work.

Yawn, another "feature" the vast majority did not ask for. How about putting more effort fixing existing bugs, code the features people actually need.

Might joke about Emoji but support is important incase someone goes and puts one in a filename and then the console can render it properly but windows explorer cant cause it uses gdi to draw text. now the shell team needs to update like everything to support emoji

Did Kenny Kerr have something to do with that WIL library? He's doing good work with his C++/WinRT that also makes life easy for modern C++ language devs.

All fun and well, but Microsoft is already too late. Yes, you can try to get the Linux users to start buying Windows, but the constant failures in updating the Operating System, spying on users for advertisement incomes, etcetera, will most likely have Windows users move away it and start to realize that any Nix system is by far better and more reliable. I moved away from Microsoft Windows late last year and never regretted it in the slightest. In the Netherlands we have a saying and translated it goes like this: Even if a monkey wears a golden ring, it will always remain an ugly thing.

Too easy. You guys just need to use / instead of \ for file path, then the current terminal is 1000% better already.

I perused through this video. My first remark is that the Windows Terminal is simply a VT-100 terminal with whistles and bells added.
smakfu (6 days ago)
Yeah, that's real nice and all - welcome to 15 years ago. Now fix the goddamn Windows10 user experience (seriously, how long are you going to drag out this crap with the settings panel and control panel migration?), address the massive UI look&feel inconsistencies, stop pretending the Windows API has been superseded, stop jamming your awful store down everyone's throat and give us back control of when updates are applied (without requiring a version with gpedit or jacking up local policy settings with regedit).

Who would have thought that ANY part of the Windows source code would ever be open-sourced? Or that an MS Dev would have used the term "dumpster fire" or "bug factory" for any of their work in progress? It truly is a new age... Applause for the openness of recent years, and hopes it continues...

Seems decent. I love Linux because of the community and opensource. I just figured out how to get Windows 10 on a raspberry pi 3 B+. WoA, though it's not created by Microsoft, I wonder if i'd be able to get this terminal for it. If not now, someone will opensource something like it. :D Anyhow, great video and I can't wait to test this out.

Why Microsoft Store? Does it means that if I don't have MS account I won't be able to use new windows terminal? Guys, you need to learn true meaning of word "free". Anyway, good work.

This looks exactly like the stuff I was working with on the mainframe in the 90is! However, I like the taste of it! Linux fans still will hate it and I never will understand them.

Ultimately I should not be impressed by the technology, this is playing catch-up. more the recognition that I could develop on windows. But should I? I will keep an open mind and give it a whirl.

knifebunny (7 days ago)
Nice improvements on the old Microsoft Terminal, looks like alot of features have been based on other terminals like cmder. All in all this is definately a step in the right direction. *claps*
