Windows has finally created a developer command line experience that can compete with OS X and bare metal Linux with the release of WSL2 combined with the new Windows Terminal. For WSL2 installion and updates, refer to the official Windows Subsystem for Linux Documentation.
PowerShell modules can enhance functionality and the user interface. In this example, the profile is updated to use git over an SSH connection, readline settings for a bash like experience, custom color output and a custom prompt.
Finally, I can use the Windows Command Prompt like Unix thanks to Clink. This CMD.exe extension adds the powerful Unix Bash-style functionality of the GNU Readline library to the Windows command line. If you are a Microsoft PowerShell user, there is also a PSReadLine module available for it. My favorite bash shell for Windows is Cygwin + ZSH + Oh My ZSH.
› After twenty plus years using Microsoft and Windows dating back to DOS 6.1 and Windows 3.1, I am learning how to make the switch to OS X. One thing I had to get used to was how to bring up context menus that I would always invoke by right clicking an object in Windows. To right click in OS X on the MacBook Pro, use the Multi-Touch trackpad and tap with two fingers at once. Another was the Delete key functions the same as backspace on a PC. No Home and End keys on the Mac took some getting used to as well, command and cursor key combo’s did the trick. A majority of shortcuts can be replicated by simply replacing what was done with the Ctrl key on a PC with the command key in OS X.
