Unix vs PowerShell

  • Comments posted to this topic are about the item Unix vs PowerShell

  • My place of work is entirely Linux based with developers using MacBooks.  I installed Powershell and do find it useful for some things.

    The problem is that although I find it useful for my personal needs there is always the pressure to find a Linux shell solution as everyone has that by default.

    With the Windows Linux Subsystem I think there would be less resistance to using both Powershell and a Linux shell.

    When I first started to use Linux I found that the various shell utilities (grep, awk, tr, uniq etc) were manna from heaven.  I wrote it up in Bash for ETL processing.

    What I am finding now is that scripted ELT is becoming more popular and with it command line utilities are adding real value.
