Give me a real shell.

So you’ve probably never heard of the Microsoft Power Shell, right!? Even though it is not fully acting like a linux shell, it is indeed interesting.
They even managed it, to offer a core version of their 2008 Server, that get’s installed without a xserver, oops i mean without a graphical user interface. Weird, isn’t it?
I’m sorry, I guess I’m too much of a Linux newbie; what exactly is your suggestion? Over the years I have become so dependent upon GUIs, both in Windows and Linux, that I do not use the command line interface much anymore, so I do not understand your point on shells. Could you dumb it down for me? Thanks!
I don’t oppose the GUI, in fact I am an OS X user by night and I don’t even touch the shell. The shell comes in handy when you need custom solutions like creating a backup script, editing system files, or even searching for files very quickly. etc. 99% of the population probably don’t even need a shell because they aren’t going to use it for these purposes. Would I recommend the shell to my grandma? No. It’s reserved for those who can utilize its true power. Once you realize the value of a good shell its hard to use a GUI as it slows things down.
One way that we made Microsoft better for us, was to get Server Intellect web hosting, with its new Windows Server 2008 and all the new upgrades and additions – including web, security and virtualization technology updates.
