better terminal for command prompt?

Hi,

Are there any better (free) terminal emulators for the command prompt, kind of like Putty?  I'd really like to be able to resize the window horizontally.

Thanks!

You can resize command window. Have you tried that? Right click on the taskbar, select Properties, click on the Layout tab and try changing it from there

Console seems to work well.  Right clicking and sizing on the normal command shell only resizes vertically.
