I'm always surprised at how many people recommened using rxvt. I use
it once in a while, but there's just too many things I do don't work

Too many things? Other than I/O (which I agree is important) of certain
Windows only programs what else does rxvt do wrong?
Personally I find the copy paste mechanism on a Windows Console enough
to switch, let along horrid (non-existent) handling of resizing the
window, bad scrolling habits, poor font selection, poor color selection,
etc. enough to have ditched the Windows Console and deal with the one
sole problem of Windows programs not understanding I/O with ptys...
If a turtle doesn't have a shell, is he homeless or naked?
