    Speaking of Weather App...I still can't change wind speed from KM/h to m/s...HATE IT!

    OH, and amount of rain is measured in cm rather than mm!

    Did you get to the bottom of extra reserve partitions yet, @Kari?
    No, that is an eternity project, will take quite some time.

    This is for the PowerShell power users:

    Download at GitHub, here: Releases · PowerShell/PowerShell · GitHub
    That is PowerShell Core, a cross-platform version of PowerShell, almost but not fully compatible with "full" Windows PowerShell that comes with Windows. About PowerShell editions:

    There are two editions of PowerShell:

    Windows PowerShell is the edition of PowerShell built on top of .NET Framework
    (sometimes referred to colloquially as FullCLR):
    • This is the PowerShell that has been in widespread use for the last ~10 years.
    • Because of its dependency on the .NET Framework, Windows PowerShell is only available on Windows (hence the name).
    • The released versions of Windows PowerShell include 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, and 5.1.
    • Windows PowerShell is available as a built-in component in Windows and Windows Server.
    • On Windows PowerShell 5.0/5.1, $PSVersionTable.PSEdition is set to Desktop.


    PowerShell Core is the edition of PowerShell built on top of .NET Core
    (sometimes simplified to CoreCLR, though it technically includes CoreFX as well).
    • PowerShell Core is cross-platform, available on Windows, macOS, and Linux, thanks to the cross-platform nature of .NET Core.
    • On PowerShell Core, $PSVersionTable.PSEdition is set to Core.

    Our goal with PowerShell Core is to remain as compatible with Windows PowerShell as technically possible.
    (From PowerShell 6.0 Roadmap: CoreCLR, Backwards Compatibility, and More! | PowerShell Team Blog)

    Windows users should keep using full PowerShell (Desktop edition), current version being 5.1 until Microsoft announces Core 6.0 support for Windows. In the future, Core will be the official version replacing Windows PowerShell.

    @Kari

    Great point about PS...I did not realize this was the Core version. A HUGE difference there! :)

    At the moment, yes, but closing the gap all the time.

    Microsoft is moving away from Windows PowerShell to Core, version 5.1 might be the last version of traditional PowerShell. Windows should get full support for Core by the end of this year. Core will then replace Windows PowerShell in near future and become the edition that will be shipped with Windows. I would not be surprised to see this happen in Windows 10 version 1803, latest in version 1809.

    Thanks Kari, from same linked page:

    Future of Windows PowerShell
    Windows PowerShell 5.1, much like .NET Framework 4.x, will continue to be a built-in, supported component of Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016. However, it will likely not receive major feature updates or lower-priority bug fixes. With PowerShell Core, we are actively addressing bugs that may have existed in previous versions of Windows PowerShell. We’re even open to contributions so that these bug fixes can be made by members of our community.
    There are no changes to the support cycles for the shipping version of Windows Management Framework (WMF).
    So if anyone uses the beta version on any of their machines bookmark the download page, and bee sure to look once and a while.

    I saw it after I had finished typing:)(I make too many typos that need to be corrected, I would be a real lousy coder).

    By the way, in the replies at the bottom, they are not sure if they'll ship /upgrade to version 6 when it's finished along with Windows 10.

    My guess is, as I said, that it will be added to Windows in 2018. I would not be surprised to see it in version 1803, but latest in version 1809.
