    I didn't need that, therefore never asked

    Just try it. You can configure almost everything via json settings file.

    Definitely superior, and I have only been using it for four days.

    In fact, I'm taking this opportunity to learn JSON so that it can be configured for more than just the default frontend for PowerShell and CMD.

    Definitely not, but it's a hell of a lot better than just about any other free alternative that natively runs on Windows. It's perfectly usable.
    I wish it had bookmarks, but I just created a PS script that runs every time you open a new tab which has my bookmarks, so, it works out.

    With also finally powershell and package manager I don't miss my Arch Linux that much and don't have to use WSL abomination either.
    Powershell is still quite incomplete. There are a lot of useful administrative tools and utilities in CMD that have yet to receive PowerShell equivalents, ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew being two examples.

    Of course both Powershell the terminal and Powershell the scripting language allow for CMD commands to be run, but it feels out of place. It's one of the things I really miss from Linux; having commands for almost every operation.

    And why the hell does Microsoft pitch Powershell as a modern alternative to CMD and then disable PS1 scripts from running in Windows?!

    If this was about Unicode they'd talk about Unicode, not about emojis specifically.

    Now watch as they make a Windows Terminal Pro Edition that's a completely separate and incompatible proprietary product, because MS simply cannot stop making competing products and sapping developer resources out of both of them. That's why I stopped using C#; Visual Studio sucks, Omnisharp for VSCode sucks (and people kept making fun of me for using it), they could just focus on one good tool instead of two dogshit ones. They've never stopped doing it before, why stop now? Remember Windows 10X?
