    Still has the most God awful file manager on the planet, not a patch on Dolphin.

    I like it as well. I use Windows and really kind of have to (yes, I use Linux as well, and macOS also!) I used to use something called ConsoleZ (there are others, but this served me well and has been actively maintained on Github) that was sort of a wrapped for CMD, etc. It allowed multiple tabs like you mention. But to be honest, Windows Terminal is nicer and being more "native" that is a plus as well. I get the skeptics out there, but I still use Windows and I need to get into terminals plenty enough. This is a huge improvement on what came before.

    Hold up, we are still in the Extend phase , so everything linux can do, or does well is being added to windows.. Windows might even ask for user consent before updating!

    BS on hotkey made me laugh ๐Ÿ˜

    But this is not Phoronix anymore, this place became M$onix...

    Maybe in another 20 they will come up with proper filesystem.
    Nope, the filesystem is almost the immutable part of any Windows after NT, therefore is where M$ backdoors lie.

    That's unfortunate.

    I run Windows on a Standard user account for security, so privilege elevation is kind of a very major part of my workflow. I will very much prefer all my terminals (restricted and privileged) to exist as tabs in Windows Terminal and not have the privileged consoles exist as their own CMD or Powershell window.

    Maybe it will help.
    I found that single instance mode is going to be supported
