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."

PowerShell has aliases for lots of unix commands like ls.

That's cool. Someone else here mentioned that it accepts forward or backward slashes, too. For me, that will be great. I hate having to type backward slashes on MS. For people starting out, they may get very confused as to which way is the right way. But, you can't blame MS for not switching cold turkey. That would break a lot of things. These are things that I look forward to discovering.
