Elementary OS and Deepin are pretty similar to Mac OS

Powershell is the closest thing to a real shell in windows. Also cygwin if you want a unix command line in windows. You just have to navigate out to your regular files with cd /cygdrive/c/.

But what's with the goddamn fucking beep? Who the fuck would want this? WHY IS THERE NO OBVIOUS WAY TO GET RID OF IT.

Then get off of windows. It has a ridiculous updating strategy that should make companies think it can't be a serious tool for a work environment.

tl;dr; I left my job and the mac stayed with them, but I might try to buy it off of them because it's ridiculous to do any work on windows.

You could try duel booting or virtualboxing linux and see if you like its shell more. About 50% of linux users live in the shell so you know it's going to be good. I personally use Manjaro because it's easy setup and it has a straight forward desktop unlike Ubuntu. That and the AUR means you never have to set up a compile for almost anything because someone has compiled it before and turned it into a script. It means Arch based linuxes like Manjaro have the largest software library of any OS that can run after a one command line install.

Which beeping? PC speaker beeping? If so, just disconnect the PC speaker. IIRC, CMD was always crap.

Windows Terminal for a better terminal and WSL for a usable shell.
