Bash within Console

I really enjoy using Console for its support for multiple consoles within a single window via a tabbed interface.

I frequently use Cygwin, and in particular Bash. I found it incredibly handy that Console will support a Bash prompt as well.

Here's a screenshot of the Tab settings for Bash. I installed Cygwin to C:\cygwin. If you didn't, you'll need to alter the path to the executable and icon accordingly.
