I'm not saying powershell doesn't have merit, and you are free to use it
as much as you want, but just like you have stated your opinion, I was
stating mine and as such it can be biased.

However, as others have pointed out, Microsoft has a very bad track
record, unlike Red Hat and Google. If Microsoft wants to be trusted they
will have to earn it.
