I agree.

I am glad you used the word "almost", because using Windows batch scripting for some devops work I have been doing has resulted in me having to work around the language and do things in a manner that I would not see as particularly elegant.

Of course I could rewrite it with powershell scripting, which is on my list, but when you are working on systems that are business critical - doing a large code refactor is not always possible largely due to the cost to the business.
