Microsoft "Once upon a time, when DOS walked the earth, the command line was the primary user interface for most of our computers. Then, Windows came along, and Microsoft seemed set on leaving the command prompt to dry up and wither into obscurity. Fortunately, Microsoft has again turned its attention to the command line and, in so doing, has produced one of the most compelling new Windows features eWEEK Labs has ever had the pleasure to test: Windows PowerShell."

This reminds me of Windows Script Host. Why write two lines of Perl when you can write 12 lines of VBScript?

PowerShell seems to be more of a vehicle for .NET adoption than a solution for sys admins.
