But most useful things from mintty is custom fonts and switchable background
colour (I definitely like black on white)...

Anyone can get another goodies, just read:

  http://code.google.com/p/mintty/
                Xterm-compatible terminal emulation
                Comprehensive character encoding support, including UTF-8
                256 colours

My ~/.minttyrc:

  ; -*- mode: conf -*-
