Submission + - Powershell is Open Sourced and available for Linux and MacOS (microsoft.com)

Bobfrankly1 writes: Some have suspected the possibility of Powershell on linux since the release of DotNet Core. JSnover announced the release today:

Today, we are taking the next step in our journey. I am extremely excited to share that PowerShell is open sourced and available on Linux. (For those of you who need a refresher, PowerShell is a task-based command-line shell and scripting language built on the .NET Framework to help IT professionals control and automate the administration of the Windows, and now Linux, operating systems and the applications that run on them.)

It's available on github now: https://github.com/PowerShell/...

Submission + - Net Neutrality struck down by Court (gigaom.com) 1

Submission + - California Sex Offenders get Support from the EFF (wired.com) 2

Bobfrankly1 writes: The EFF sued to block portions of the approved Prop 35 today. Prop 35 requires sex offenders (including indecent exposure and non-internet offenses) to provide all of their online aliases to law enforcement. This would include e-mail addresses, screen and user names, and other identifiers used on the internet.
The heart of the matter as the EFF sees it, would be not only the chilling effect it would have on free speech, but also the propensity of these kind of laws to be applied to other (non-sex offending) people as well.
