PowerShell for the Masses

Up till now, PowerShell had been a scripting tool aimed at Windows administrators. Under new, more liberal licensing, PowerShell may well be ported to a variety of other platforms such as the Mac and Linux.

The license, called the Microsoft Community Promise agreement, is a bit of an open source strategy. Under this license developers can modify PowerShell 2.0 without the need for a formal agreement.

To help developers, Microsoft released a PowerShell 2.0 spec. So far there are no concrete plans for PowerShell ports.
