Installing Console with PowerShell

On Monday, I published an article on an open source application called Console. This app creates a better console (cmd.exe) environment,  in which you can run PowerShell.

I got a comment on the blog as to how to install it. Easy - first download the zip file from SourceForge, extract it to a folder on your local system and  run console.exe. Create a shortcut to your desktop. And to get to PowerShell - just type PowerShell

You don't even have to type powershell, you can specify it as the default shell in the cofig file. Just add shell="C:\WINDOWS\system32\windowspowershell\v1.0\powershell.exe" as an attribute to the config tag.
