Microsoft has made its PowerShell command line shell and automation system tools available to the open source developer community. It has also launched versions of PowerShell for Linux and OS X.
In a blog post, Microsoft stated:
Now, users across Windows and Linux, current and new PowerShell users, even application developers can experience a rich interactive scripting language as well as a heterogeneous automation and configuration management that works well with your existing tools. Your PowerShell skills are now even more marketable, and your Windows and Linux teams, who may have had to work separately, can now work together more easily.
The PowerShell open source project is now available on GitHub, along with alpha versions for the Ubuntu, Centos, and Red Hat variants of Linux. It's also available for OS X 10.11. This is just the latest example of Microsoft embracing the open source developer community. It has released a number of tools and software programs to GitHub, including the iOS Bridge Tools for Windows 10 UWP apps.
