      alexanderprange After using the installer tool with ConEmu I experienced better performance than I did using cmder. Also it fixed the bug with the scrollback in ssh sessions.

      alexanderprange For throwing around a few commands, cmder takes the cake. When I plan to spend hours at my PC though Moba is the better choice

      Really nice for SSH connections. Has (limited) abilities with WSL (you can manually set up via Powershell to run command wsl -d {DistributionName} if you don't see WSL listed in the menu). Can run powershell, cmd, wsl. --Has tabs, so it's supernice for managing more ssh connections at once.

      alexanderprange Tabby is a fantastic responsive feature full terminal. Better UI and almost as customizable as cmder. It would probably be my go to terminal if it didn't eat so much of my RAM.
