Cmd it’s the command to open the command line window in Windows.
The first has various interesting features liks multiple tabs, text editor-like text selection, different background types, alpha and color-key transparency, configurable font, etc…
The second allows to use many Unix/Linux features on Windows, with many advantages: a powerful shell, you can run many server applications, and, not last, the GCC compiler that allows to compile and execute many programs written for Linux.
You can make them work together in easy way:
1. Install Cygwin
2. Download, extract and start Console
3. Go to Edit -> Settings
4. Under the “Console” settings, point the Shell to Cygwin.bat (eg. C:cygwinCygwin.bat), then press OK
