How I became a terminal customization junky

In the beginning, there was PS C:\>_ I have been a regular PowerShell users for years. Probably about a decade now and I avoided customizing the shell on my workstation for the vast majority of that time. Despite PSRemoting being a thing for almost the entirety of PowerShell’s existence now. For one reason or another, I would usually end up RDPing into a server just to open PowerShell. I did not want to become dependent on modules like PSReadLine or console emulators like ConEmu for fear I would be handicapped when I had to use PowerShell on another system.
