.NET (dotGNU too) Igor Moochnick announced Pash, an open source implementation of Microsoft's PowerShell. "The main goal is to provide a rich shell environment for other operating systems as well as to provide a hostable scripting engine for rich applications. The user experience should be seamless for people who are used to Windows version of PowerShell. The scrips, cmdlets and providers should runs AS-IS (if they are not using Windows-specific functionality). The rich applications that host PowerShell should run on any other operating system AS-IS. Secondary goal: the scripts should run across the machines and different OS's seamlesly (but following all the security guidelines)."

If I changed my login shell to /usr/bin/python and eschewed bash for a month


I wouldn't. The standard python interpreter would make a lousy bash replacement; it's just a convenient way to execute Python code interactively, not manage your entire OS. If you really want to try an interactive Python shell, take a look at IPython:
