Windows terminal announcement

#1

The Windows Terminal uses a GPU accelerated DirectWrite/DirectX-based text rendering engine. This new text rendering engine will display text characters, glyphs, and symbols present within fonts on your PC, including CJK ideograms, emoji, powerline symbols, icons, programming ligatures, etc. This engine also renders text much faster than the previous Console’s GDI engine!

this can be a huge step for windows REPL julia sessions, what do you think?

Possibly Microsoft should just go to the logical conclusion directly: port Office, fix everything in Wine so that people can run legacy programs, and make “Windows” a theme for a Linux desktop environment. :wink:

I would totally use that…except for Microsoft office…and their theme…but I would use Linux!
