Submission + - Microsoft to Support OpenSSH in PowerShell (msdn.com)

CSHARP123 writes: Third time is a charm. Microsoft after 2 failed attempts of OpenSSH support in Windows, this time has decided to add OpenSSH support in PowerShell. Microsoft, which has been integrating Linux into its Azure cloud and server offerings knows that its customers want support for OpenSSH.
Angel Calvo, Microsoft's PowerShell Team Group Software Engineering Manager, explained, "A popular request the PowerShell team has received is to use Secure Shell protocol and Shell session (aka SSH) to inter-operate between Windows and Linux — both Linux connecting to and managing Windows via SSH and, vice versa, Windows connecting to and managing Linux via SSH. Thus, the combination of PowerShell and SSH will deliver a robust and secure solution to automate and to remotely manage Linux and Windows systems."
