After trying nearly a zillion different shells on Windows, I’m back to Cygterm, in part because it makes cygwin happy and because I’ve just come to accept that some stuff will always require cmd.exe. Windows just sucks like that. On the upside, the Wombat VIM theme rocks my world.

    I’ve always been a huge fan of Desert, but you just sold me on Wombat =)

    I help build Windows software at work (Chrome). Believe me, windows isn’t my first choice when it comes to desktop OSen.
