    Terminal in windows?


    Hello everyone,

    I'm new to the whole linux/windows incorporation. I've messed around with linux for a bit, but I'm good with windows. I probably already have the answer to my question, but it doesn't hurt to come and ask, right?

    My question is is there anyway to put the ubuntu or redhat(Since I've worked with both) terminal into windows with the same sudo commands and whatnot? I don't like the windows command prompt and would perfer the linux one.

    Thanks!

    In any case, MS DOS prompt will be efficient in MS windows platform. Bash derivatives are not much optimized yet as I know for windows.

    I think you are looking for cygwin, it lets you use some of the linux tools on windows in a shell.

    If you have Windows Vista or Server 2008:

    Windows Subsystem for Unix-based Applications

    Thanks everyone!

    I'll certainly try some of these. I have xp on this computer, so hopefully some of these can work!

    Thanks again!
