Microsoft trying to outdo Unix again

Just heard about Microsoft’s PowerShell (you can download therelease candidate from that page, too). It’s a new scripting language/environment based on .NET that tries to do what Unix has had inherent in it since day 1 — link commands together and provide an easy-to-use, coherent and powerful scripting environment. I don’t know how many of you know about WSH (Windows Scripting Host) but that’s been around for a long time but it’s beena bit difficult to use. PowerShell looks to be more powerful but I don’t know that it’s gonna do it for them.Let’s face it, if you design it from the ground up for modularity, like Unix, it’s difficult to beat.
