ConEmu Comments

Even better then Console2 1 Helpful

Positive Comment by d3a1i0
about ConEmu and Console Aug 2013

I used to use Console2 in Windows, but came across ConEmu while looking for alternatives because development on Console2 is extremely slow, if the project has not been completely abandoned. From the moment I installed it I was impressed and can't imagine a better console emulator.
