Windows 7: Transparent command window? [duplicate]

Linux and other *nix based operating systems usually have an option for transparent command window displays. Is there a way to get this kind of eye-candy in Windows 7?

Take a look Console. It's an open source replacement for the windows command shell terminal that supports many interesting features, including transparency. Not sure if it will work on Windows 7, but it's worth a try.

"The standard command prompts can be made transparent in all versions of Windows starting from Windows 2000 up to Windows 7 with help of Actual Transparent Window utulity. ATW recently includes this feature and works on both 32 and 64 bits Windows.
Please note this is not a command prompt replacement, it works with the native cmd.exe."
