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.

what do you think DOS was all about?

But we live in a world where everything is all about visuals and emotion (tv, movies, games) and less about audio/verbal intelligence. So it is reasonable for people to assume that a CLI won't be popular in this environment.
