I haven't used PowerShell much.  But in briefly looking at it, the
commands are very verbose compared to Unix/Linux.  E.g. grep is
something like Get-Item.

My Windows survival kit currently consists of Cygwin, which still kicks
butt to this day.  You could even run a full X server under Cygwin.


The computer can't tell you the emotional story.  It can give you the
exact mathematical design, but what's missing is the eyebrows.
