PowerShell just baffles me. For me I don't really spend a lot of time writing scripts. At the beginning and end of projects mainly for generating or loading images (bamboo server stuff). cmd.exe has simple syntax and I can search for examples and get a script up and running quickly, bash is another straight forward tool. But PowerShell, if you haven't used it in a while it takes days to get even the most simple thing to work. When I'm told to run a PowerShell script they never work the first time (typical MS). I worked briefly at MS years ago (was fired, I can laugh about it now, the area I worked in failed miserably and was disbanded) but it is filled with people that think they are at the top of the food chain, look at the 10 billion dollar mess Windows CE was. It was like being in a cult, I said early that Windows CE would never work (I worked on bare metal systems enough to know) and they looked at me like I was stupid and said their mom wears army boots. I have to say the new CEO is doing a great job all things considered. PowerShell is just one example of a group that got paid good money to write software that didn't have a hard "earn money" metric. In the end they are the smart ones, get paid to write software that no one cares about when looking at the revenue numbers. Its like the CA life guards that get $120k and full pensions. So when looking at that sometimes I do feel stupid but I like having challenging projects to work on.
