Command interpreter for WinXP : alternative to cmd?

I'm looking for a good alternative to the winxp command interpreter... Have tried powershell but I'm not fond of it (and its window always needs several seconds to appear on my laptop, which annoys me a lot), same goes for cygwin-based bash shells...
I'm just looking for a better implementation of the standrd features of cmd (auto-completion, more colours etc.) in a simple shell. In the DOS era there were plenty of them, some actually quite good, but not anymore since the point-and-click interface has become a standard.
Have anything to recommend?

If you won't recommend an app (which we could afterwards discuss) --> General Chat :?
