Microsoft Terminal and more…

I installed the terminal right away from the Microsoft Store ( https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/windows-terminal-preview/9n0dx20hk701?activetab=pivot:overviewtab)

I’m loving it so far, its currently in preview.
I use PowerShell quite often at the office and switching between cmd and PowerShell for a few things.

I come from a Linux background and always found on the windows side of things the “terminal” was always felt disconnected between cmd and PowerShell, for work I end up having to use each, yes I could have setup environment variables to get around this but it was too much effort for me, having one terminal with multiple profiles in a easy JSON format makes so much sense. Going to set up some profiles I use frequently and upload it my github to share the goodness, for now take a look at the microsoft repo below. Some great things are happening and Scott Hanselman is always so entertaining to watch.
