Can Go fix the Windows command line?
Seppe Stas https://twitter.com/seppestas
When building a tool to automatically set up SSH connections to remote systems, Go is a dead obvious choice of technology. One of the mean reasons for this is portability: I can build one tool, and run it on different types of systems. Even Windoes! One problem though... Windows' command line interface sucks. Terribly. Let's see what Go can do to fix this (read: work around this), without affecting the code for the useful OSes to much. https://github.com/Bitbored/go-ansicon
