gnome-terminal like terminal in Windows XP?

Posted on

QUESTION :

I’m running Cygwin in Windows XP. I find it quite handy, apart from it running in the default Windows Command Prompt.

Are there any alternatives to this? For example, is there a terminal that is like gnome-terminal? I would like something that allows me to double click, mouse drag to select text; Ctrl+Shift+[XCV] to cut, copy and paste text.

ANSWER :

The favored terminal on Cygwin at the moment is mintty. I believe that it’s part of the base install. If not, it’s in the mintty package you can install from setup.exe.
