Cygwin is a windows program that simulates a Linux
environment. The default installation uses
cmd.exe as the terminal program
which is not very convenient. For example, it can only be resized up to 80
characters in width. Fortunately, there is an
rxvt package in the Cygwin
distribution. You only need to tweak some options to make it look like the
terminal in Unix system.
Right click "Start > Cygwin > rxvt-native" menu item, and select "Properties...", edit the "Target" field to:
C:\path-to-cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -display :0 -geometry 80x43 +sb -bg black -fg gray -fn "DejaVu Sans Mono-16" -tn rxvt-cygwin-native -e /bin/bash --login
You can change the "DejaVu Sans Mono" font to any other font name you prefer.
