The command line is dead... long live the command line!

So, MS wants us to believe that Powershell is what separates effective admins from non-effective ones. I'm on board. I'll take a CLI over a GUI most days. But seriously, give us a good place to run it. The Windows console sucks. Why can't I change the width of the window by dragging the side? I'm not even asking for dynamic word wrapping here, just the ability to widen the damn window. Why can't I select lines of text? Or double-click on a word and have the word highlight? Or extend my selection? Perhaps I'm being spoiled by my Unix roots where xterm and friends have been doing this for years (and by that, I mean decades). If you want me to take you seriously MS, make your CLI environment not suck.
