With the release of PowerShell Core 6.0, Microsoft delivers on its ambitious goal of bringing the command line and scripting language to Linux and Mac users.

PowerShell Core 6.0 is now generally available, following the release candidate that Microsoft let loose in November 2017.

The open-source tool, separate from the edition of PowerShell that ships with Microsoft’s flagship Windows operating system, is available for Mac, Linux and, of course, Windows. PowerShell Core 6.0 represents a major change in direction for a command line and task automation technology has that been traditionally associated with managing Windows environments, according to Microsoft’s Jeffery Snover, inventor of PowerShell.


It’s defiantly a new Microsoft this is something that would have never happen with Steve Ballmer at the helm.
