How can I learn to work with the SourceTree terminal?

What's going on inside the SourceTree terminal?  It's similar to a Unix shell, but there's other things going on, for instance the (partial?) list of commands that printed before the new prompt every time a command completes.  Some Unix commands work, others don't.  Is there a way to expand the width?  It would be nice to understand what I'm dealing with.

If you're on a Windows machine, it's opening up a Git Bash window.

Most Windows users don't know that PC implies Windows PC unless specified to be *NIX. So it might me good to explicitly say so.
