Make the Command Prompt GUI look nicer

For those who have not done that yet, here is a little video tutorial I made on how to make the cmd GUI a little fancier. I did not like the little black window of cmd - maybe you don't either.

Well, there wasn't one on SevenForums We need to get SevenForums.com to be the #1 source for all thing Windows. Until Windows 8 is released/leaked. Then we need to do the same for theEightForums.com

EDIT: Btw, CMD Prompt doesn't have a GUI

I guess you are right - I used GUI lightly as "user interface". But if you can put it into the tutorials section, that's very useful. Since my tutorial is a video, it does not quite fit the format though.
