Richard, you crack me up. You are either doing what the psychologists call projecting, or…I don’t know. Anyway, I’m certainly not pigeon-holeing PowerShell to be one or the other. It is and shall always be, a platform with the flexibility inherent in that term. The irony is that when I make a suggestion about the language, and I get sort of befuddled responses of “why the heck would anyone ever want to do that?” (made even more ironic by the fact that my suggestion described behavior that was changed), it makes me wonder what am I doing differently that my INCREDIBLY OBVIOUS suggestion isn’t seen instantly as such by my peers. I thought about it for a minute, and the premise of this poll is what I decided might be the cause.
I personally am very heavy on the shell side in how I ordinarily use PowerShell, I’ve always known this. That makes me value certain shell-oriented features more highly than others. (Duh.) That’s all. I’m just curious as to the distribution. Would love to get more responses.
