Installing Tmux on Windows

To be much more productive with my workflow using Rails, is there a way to install Tmux on Windows? Attempting to search for a way to has been cryptic to find, despite knowing any Postix way I can emulate using cgywin/MINGW32 perhaps.

Thought I'd ask before trying out if I can use Cloud9 for the convenience Tmux provides...

My understanding is that tmux is basically session management for dumb terminals. I'd recommend you check out console2

Thank you James; I downloaded it and opened the zip. For some reason however , it acts crazy whenever I try to do something as simple as rails v that doesn't happen when I use all my other consoles (i.e., cgywin, command prompt w/ Node, etc..)

Is there additional steps I must take for it to work optimally? My main use for a multi-terminal would be for Rails.
