Windows Terminal is recommended for devs on Windows PCs

Since Windows Terminal v0.6 was released, Windows Terminal is now a useful and welcome addition to any developer working on Windows. It has no prerequisites and works well with multiple WSL distros.

The major bugs now fixed include:

  • ability to scroll left and right through many terminal windows tabs
  • ability to copy and paste with proper newlines

The Windows PC does not have to have a Developer Build of Windows. Just standard Windows 10 1903 (build 18362) or newer is fine, and get Microsoft Terminal from the Microsoft Store.

Windows Terminal and associated infrastructure is open source with MIT license. The current plan is to have v1.0 by year-end 2019.
