I’ve been using products from JP Software for years, since back in the days of DOS. Their original product, 4DOS, was a replacement for command.com, the old MS-DOS command shell. Their current product, Take Command, is basically a replacement for CMD.EXE, with a bunch of enhancements and random bells & whistles. I hadn’t upgraded in about three years, so I went ahead and did that today. It’s a very nice program, with the enhanced command line embedded in a file browser. Maybe I’ll post some more details when I get a chance to play with it some more. I’m conflicted on whether or not I should invest too much time in learning the new stuff in TC. From a career standpoint, I should probably concentrate on PowerShell. But honestly, I know I can get stuff done faster and easier with TC.
Oh, and I took the screen shot shown here with Jing, which I haven’t used in quite a while. Since the last time I used it, it seems that they’ve added the ability to upload your screen shots to Flickr, Twitter, and Facebook. Nice.
