Best Terminal for Windows 2022

This is a post to share an opinion on what the best Terminal in Windows is. The answer to all our needs in 2022 is Windows Terminal.

This is a very different post from what I usually do. But it’s good to share an honest straight-to-post thought. I intentionally don’t give much personality away on this blog. It’s a place for posting my technical notes, with the hope that it provides every viewer with what they were searching for Online.

At least this top Terminal for Windows list comes from someone in the software/database engineering game. I use Windows Terminal every day and love it. Also, this post will likely & intentionally get lost in the nether. As ever, see how goes.

That’s me for now, over.
