Does the WP7 support terminal access where I can actually run commands on the phone from my computer?

Similar to the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) which allows you to connect to the device and open a shell and run commands on the device itself.

While the ADB is a developer tool, there are a lot of non-developer related things you can do with it.

No it is not possible to gain terminal access. However, you could try rooting your device.

Do this at your own risk

Besides the obvious of possibly bricking your phone, you could loose carrier support and would be up a creek as they say.

Now that I think about it, I'm not event sure rooting gives you terminal access. There is an SDK supported for the tool. That might be what you are looking for.
