Having said that, I'm quite used to gnome-termianl's and konsole's multi-tabbed command prompt interface, which is just as revolutionary as tabbed web-browser interface. Once used it, you'll never be able to go back.
For the past few months, most of my work is done on a Windows workstation, which I use to develop in multiple programming languages, research web-oriented security stuff and manage several Linux servers. Last week, while doing all of those at the same time, I got tired of the mess, and looked for a better way to manage my command prompts. Here is the result. Apparently this is not very new, so I was surprised I haven't heard about it before. Console 2.0 is a real bless, and is exactly what I was looking for, no more, no less.
Now, I have shortcuts for opening new tabs of several kinds:
- Standard CMD.
- Cygwin bash shell.
- Visual Studio 2005 command prompt.
- PowerShell (thought giving it a shot. For now I still think it sucks)
- Pre-configued command line SSH connections (ssh -l username host) for several servers. This is way more handy than the other Putty wrappers.
