After having used aterm on my linux box, i would like to find a way to make the command prompt on Microsoft Windows also transparent. Basically my would like my cygwin command shell to look transparent. Even after googling for a while, i couldn't figure out a way to get this done. Its possible to create transperancy for any Windows application, by using the SetLayeredWindowAttributes API call, but this does not seem to work well for the command prompt. Ideas Anyone?
