ConEmu – Windows console with tabs

ConEmu-Maximus5 is a Windows console window enhancement (local terminal emulator), which presents multiple consoles and simple GUI applications as one customizable tabbed GUI window with various features. Initially, the program was created as a companion to Far Manager, my favorite shell replacement. Today, ConEmu can be used with any other console application or simple GUI tools (like PuTTY for example). ConEmu is an active project, open to suggestions. Disclaimer #1. ConEmu is not a shell, so it does not provide “shell features” like tab-completion, command history and others. ConEmu does not provide remote access (SSH/Telnet/…) too. ConEmu is advanced console window (local terminal) where you can run any shell or remote access client of your choice. However, some of these features placed in RoadMap. Disclaimer #2. If you notice lags while executing batches or commands (from cmd/git/bash/etc.) just uncheck option “Inject ConEmuHk”.

Manjaro Testbuilds

Manjaro Linux is a Linux Distribution based on Arch Linux. It is still under development, but an initial testing release is already available. Our aim is to create a light linux distribution, which is simple, up-to-date, fast and user friendly and which follows the K.I.S.S principle. We are using the Desktop Environment Xfce, which is light but powerfull. Arch Linux is a great GNU/Linux distribution, but installing and configuring it, needs some time and experience. So we improved Arch Linux. We created a more user friendly installation process, wrote bash scripts for managing graphic drivers, configured xfce with some useful functions and a GUI settings manager is also planed. Just try it. 😉
