minTTY: A usable terminal for Windows

From time to time I get re-bound to an operating system that's not my favourite: Windows. This time it's in the Windows 7 incarnation. OK, I have to admit that there are some nice features, but that doesn't really pays the bill of everything else I have to bear.

What I do at first is to install Cygwin which relieves the pain a bit. Still, I was not really satisfied with Windows command line based shell, it doesn't feel right. There are so many rough edges that it's no fun to use.
