Hi Paolo,

In my humble opinion this is really good start. I've been using coLinux for a long time and I still keep wondering how is good this piece of software. Unfortunately the standard console cannot be actually used as an everyday terminal and I use CRT or Putty instead. But your stuff seems to become a great alternative. If you still have a wish to develop it: publish it under an open source license, add tabs, configuration file or something -- that would be great. ;-)

Hi colinux users,
I have published a first version of my colinux console on


Use it quietly, I have compiled it with mingw under vmware. It cannot
have viruses.

I can easily add other font. This one is the version with 8x14 pixel
for each char.
The console size if 80x25 chars.

I have tried it enough and it is possible use it without problems.
I have used it at work ( I develop on an ARM linux system) and I use
colinux to cross compiling.
I have tested the console on 0.7.3 stable version.

* Copy and Paste
 It is possible using the mouse. Double click select and copy a word.
 Selecting copy the text in the clipboard
 Right button do paste.

* How try it
 The easiset way is to rename the old colinux-console-nt.exe and copy
the new one.
 An other way can be detach the old colinux-console-nt.exe with
ALT+WIN and run my version.
The only thing I have to remind is to avoid paste-ing of large block
od fata because it can block the colinux machine.

As soon as it is very very stable, I will send source to Henry.

Any suggestion is welcome.
