For quite some time, cmder and it's ecosystem seemed like the default.

Now there is a great new option: Alacritty.

Below are some settings to make it more unix-like and setup some defaults.

Config file:

Your config file is in %APPDATA%/alacritty/alacritty.yml.

Getting CTRL-c to work:

If you have issues with command sequences such as ctrl-c, consider enabling the conpty backend.

Locate enable_experimental_conpty_backend in the config file and set it to true:

enable_experimental_conpty_backend: true

Set up color schemes:

Visit this page and copy out a scheme, then replace the section in your config file.
