A new Beta of the Microsoft Command Shell (Codename Monad) was released a few days ago. Windows “Monad” Shell is a new interactive command-line and task-based scripting technology in Windows that enables administrators to more efficiently and securely automate and control system management tasks on both desktops and servers. MSH as it’s commonly called requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 RTM and is currently available on both x86 and AMD64.
Being a command-line guy, I am VERY excited about this product. I have been using it off and on since the first beta – it’s a completely different approach for Microsoft. I guess I’ve forgot how difficult learning a new shell can be – MSH is SO powerful, but definitely not intuitive.
