Yes, I have used Bash on Ubuntu on Windows/WSL/lxss and found cmd console
useless, so I installed wsltty from github, and I just finished replacing my
wsltty install, using standard Cygwin 64 mintty, with wslbridge installed into
/usr/local/bin/, and adjustments to the WSL shortcuts to use those paths, with
the Ubuntu Circle of Friends bash.ico, in a Ubuntu Start Menu folder, manually.
I'm looking to convert the wsltty install scripts with Cygwin scripts.
I use a lot of native Windows GUIs instead of Cygwin/X apps for responsiveness,
as my system is from 2010.
Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
