Windows "The new Windows PowerShell is coming. Actually, Microsoft has just launched a Community Technology Preview of Windows PowerShell version 3, although the final version 3 probably won’t ship until it comes out with Windows 8. It also will be available for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. The CTP will install on those OSes."

Can we maximize PowerShell's window yet? It irritates me to no end that in this day and age...


Indeed it is unfortunate that the maximize button on the console host doesn't actually maximize in both the horizontal and vertical directions. This is not the fault of PowerShell, though, but of the console host that it runs inside. The same host is used for cmd.exe.

In fact this is so retarded that Scott Hanselman, a Microsoft employee, recommends installing a third party console host. Full article here:
