Windows right-click (tangent):

what I *really, really* miss is the ability in ubuntu to right click and "open terminal here."

open command window here should help you get the equivalent enabled in Windows. I additionally create an "Open this File's Directory" to the RClick menu for every file type by doing the following from a .reg file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\*\shell\OpenThisFilesDirectory] @="Open This File's Directory" "Icon"="%SystemRoot%\\system32\\cmd.exe" [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\*\shell\OpenThisFilesDirectory\com +mand] @="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%W\""

Running that reg file builds the following key/value/data set:

HKCU\Software\Classes\*\shell\OpenThisFilesDirectory (Default) [REG_SZ] = Open This File's Directory Icon [REG_SZ] = %SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe HKCU\Software\Classes\*\shell\OpenThisFilesDirectory\command (Default) [REG_SZ] = cmd.exe /s /k pushd "%W"

(edit: s/\Q[tangent]\E/(tangent)/)
