    Microsoft PowerShell goes open source, lands on Linux and Mac


    Microsoft PowerShell goes open source, lands on Linux and Mac

    The folks in Redmond really do love the open source operating system

    Sysadmins, rejoice: PowerShell is coming to Linux and Mac. Microsoft announced Thursday that its automation and scripting system is breaking out of the confines of Windows and going open source.

    The company is also releasing alpha versions of PowerShell for Linux (specifically Ubuntu, Centos and Redhat) and Mac OS X. A new PowerShell GitHub page gives people the ability to download binaries of the software, as well as access to the app’s source code. **

    PowerShell on Linux and Mac will let people who have already built proficiency with Microsoft’s scripting language take those skills and bring them to new platforms. Meanwhile, people who are used to working on those platforms will have access to a new and very powerful tool for getting work done.*

    It’s part of Microsoft’s ongoing moves to open up products that the company has previously kept locked to platforms that it owned.*The company’s open sourcing of its .NET programming frameworks in 2014 paved the way for this launch, by making the building blocks of PowerShell available on Linux and OS X.*
