The Terminal provides many settings and configuration options that give you a great deal of control over the Terminal’s appearance and each of the shells/profiles that you can open as new tabs.

Settings are stored in a structured text file making it easy for users and/or tools to configure.

By Using Terminal’s configuration mechanism, uers will be able to create multiple “profiles” for each shell/app/tool users want to use, whether it be PowerShell, Command Prompt, Ubuntu, or even SSH connections to Azure or IoT devices.

These profiles can have their own combination of font styles and sizes, color themes, background blur/transparency levels, etc.

You can now create your own custom-styled Terminal that is personalized to your unique taste.

The Microsoft officially says that on there developers blog website

After we’ve shipped Windows Terminal 1.0, we plan to get started on many of the features already in our backlog, in addition to the many features you as the community are likely to add!

Conclusion:

This new tool is totally focused on command line users.The terminals are easy to use,fast,powerful and best for development projects.So why Microsoft didn’t contributing on existing open source terminal projects.

Well Microsoft’s involvement in an existing project would require changing the project’s requirements and architecture in ways that would be too disruptive.So they develop and create a new terminal for windows users.

In addition to this open source project they also open sourced the Microsoft Console.Which hosts the command-line infrastructure in Windows and provides the traditional Console UX.

This is a new tool.It will help the users to use the system more technically. For developers it will help for development and build better user experience.

What is UEFI :

UEFI stands for Unified Extensible Firmware Interface.It is a replacement of Basic Input Output system (BIOS).In the modern computer this specification is for a software program that connects a computer’s firmware to its operating system.In modern PC’s UEFI replace the BIOS.Like the BIOS,the UEFI is installed at the time of manufacturing and this is the first program that runs when we turn on the computer.



Both BIOS and UEFI are low lebel software that starts when you boot your PC and its run before booting of operating system.But UEFI is a  more modern approach because its offers faster booting,more security features and supports large hard drives.

Intel has announced plans to completely replace BIOS with UEFI on their all chipsets. 

You can see newer PC that ship with UEFI still refer to it as BIOS to avoid confusing the traditional PC users.But the modern PC all offers UEFI instead of BIOS.

UEFI have more faster booting feature and more secure.One of the best feature of UEFI is secure boot.The secure boot features offers Operating System to check malware on booting time and allows it to install the right program on your PC.Windows 8.1 and 10 comes with the secure boot feature.That means you can install only Microsoft certified program when the secure boot is on.
