Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y In 2006, Microsoft released Windows Powershell, a new command line shell that, via cmdlets, scripts, and executables, allow core system administration tasks to be scripted. While this functionality has been available on Unix-type systems for decades, Microsoft's version will almost certainly, within a few years, be available on several hundred million PCs. So how does the Powershell stack up against Linux favorite bash? MSDN links to this Bash vs Powershell article.

Early languages like FORTRAN, COBOL, LISP, etc had no such syntax.

I don't have a specific quote but if you look at Powershell it resembles Perl in a lot of other ways.

And yes putting a Porschë emblem on a car instantly makes it much more marketable!
