Not what I meant, but actually I prefer it on Windows over the alternatives
that I know which are
1) Cygwin (too bloated)
2) MinGW shell (drives me crazy by being about a factor 5 too slow for me
   not to be constantly annoyed with it just when displaying text, about
   a factor 20 too slow when actually running scripts)
3) native shell which is still too slow for scripts and drives you crazy
   by lacking features like interactive search through previous commands
(maybe I should try PowerShell for the features even though I think
they completely missed the point there and it can't fix that launching
commands is far too slow).
