PowerShell is open sourced and is available on Linux

Posted on Friday, August 19th, 2016 in open source by DP

Microsoft is announcing PowerShell on Linux and open source, that is available on GitHub:

Today, we are taking the next step in our journey. I am extremely excited to share that PowerShell is open sourced and available on Linux. (For those of you who need a refresher, PowerShell is a task-based command-line shell and scripting language built on the .NET Framework to help IT professionals control and automate the administration of the Windows, and now Linux, operating systems and the applications that run on them.) I’m going to share a bit more about our journey getting here, and will tell you how Microsoft Operations Management Suite can enhance the PowerShell experience.

More details at Microsoft Azure blog.

    Yeah – Right! Like now that Micro$oft Windows is evolving into the largest SpyWare OS in history by numbers of users (victims actually) – am I going to put this on my Linux and/or xBSD machine? I don’t think so. Stay AWAY from this!
