    Sorry but why do we need this terminal is Command Prompt and Power Shell are already built into the OS?

    It seems pretty crude so far. At this point it just gives me the option of Powershell or a CMD prompt. And tabs. Meh. I guess it would be ok as a replacement. It doesn't really serve a purpose in addition to the things already in place.

    agreed, and when I tried to launch powershell from it, it just gives me a UAC prompt and launches a separate Window of Powershell so I might as well just launch that myself.
