Submission + - Microsoft to Support OpenSSH in PowerShell->

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."

For me, everything is developed in-house, does not care if project is delayed, manger encourages rewrite of the entire project when a newer version of the tool is released and lastly but not least they pay developers boat load of money and do not have to work more than 8 hours and don't have to support if it fails in the production.

I have installed the consumer preview. I cannot stand the Metro interface with Mouse and Keyboard. My colleague has it on a tablet and it seems to work fine with fingers. This is similar to Vista when all the tech bloggers had bad reviews on it and still MS made billions on it. Same thing happens, by Windows 9, they will have users adopted to this UI or tweaked it like they did in Windows7.

Keep it on all the time in all places. That way you don't have to fear free speech. On the paper Big brother can easily say, we have best free speech law in the world, but in reality we use this neat little gadget that make sure that no one else other big brother is speaking. How innovative?

When the bosses talk about improving productivity, they are never talking about themselves.
