I can confirm 4NT to be an excellent piece of software. I know it for
more than 7 years now, and find it always cumbersome to work on a pc
not having the best shell on earth (tm) installed.
The most important things are:
- command completition
- aliases
- directory/file coloring
- copy paste with right-click, Ctrl-V or Shift-Insert

Even things, that bash or none of the linux-shells I know have :-)
