Windows The client version of Windows isn't the only one getting overhauled. It's a little less sexy, but Windows Server 8 is every bit as different from its predecessors as the Windows 8 client. Server Core (Windows Server running without the graphical user interface) is the, uh, core now, and everything is done using PowerShell - either directly, or through the new Metro-style Server Manager which is a layer on top of PowerShell. The buzzword here is cloud - not the big one, but those smaller ones on intranets.

Sorry again dude, but you wouldn't change my stand with such crap.

*NIX owns the server market, and there's a big reason behind it: stable/scalable/powerful.

So your point is that PowerShell is done right and UNIX utilities aren't. Nice Try.

It was a bit of a joke. The book is like 20 years old.

But usually what someone calls perfect another person calls it crap.

Most of the jobs in my area of my country are ASP.NET, so Windows Server and IIS are the most used kit.

Personally I find Unix to be confusing. Weird command line switches that differ from program to program. Odd command names "awk, sed" etc. To make a file I "touch" it?
