A Better Terminal for Cygwin - MinTTY

I'm back working at a place where they use windows on the desktop, so to feel more at home I'm running Cygwin of course. However, the biggest fail with Cygwin (IMHO) is the actual console, which, lets be honest, pretty much sucks. Luckily I happened across a nifty article on LifeHacker which pointed me to MinTTY, a terminal app for Cygwin which feels far more like Konsole or Gnome-Terminal (ie: a console that doesn't suck) that is native to windows. Yay!
