eWeek put out an article yesterday titled Command Line Makes A Comeback. It is not only a good, fair view of PowerShell. It is quite favorable. I like this quote early on in the article:
"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."
Yes eWeek IMO, the PowerShell product team has accomplished something very innovative and special with Windows PowerShell. It is ironic that in 2006 one of the most innovative products coming from Microsoft is a new “command line interface".
