PowerShell is M$'s "replacement' for the Command Prompt.
Maybe this will accelerate Bash integration. I tried to play with the Powershell years ago... YUK! Lets take a shell and make it Object Oriented... Huh? Why? it's a F*ing command prompt. Why oh why make it so complicated?
So now I can overlay one dreadful GUI with another equally dreadful GUI.
Why would I want to do this?
This made me laugh. Having written programs in most of the languages living people have heard of, Perl is the one language I can write something in and 15 minutes later can't figure out what it does! I always called Perl the perfect write only language.
Having said that... I could write a Perl program in 5 lines that I would spend HOURS trying to figure out how to do in just about anything else.
Why do we cave to people who want to use ancient unsupported stuff? Microsoft does not even support this stuff any more, and it's only used in places like banks where some idiot is in charge of IT and insists on 'standardizing' on something that is unsupported and a security nightmare. I support a VERY large application that is designed for Fortune 500 companies, and we simply tell them old IE is unsupported because it is not HTML5 compliant. Use Chrome, Firefox, or Edge. We get one second of pushback until they fire up IE and the page looks like crap and EVERY OTHER BROWSER renders perfectly. Then they install a real browser and I no longer need to support garbage. We just removed Flash support in the most recent version, and nobody noticed.
People use IE because they THINK it's the standard browser. as soon as they see that it is fundamentally broken, they switch.
ahh! Suzanne Vega Reference there!

Nobody will know what it is unless you tell them, and even then some people will not be able to see it.
The guys at Ford can feel comfortable knowing they are no longer the only suckers in the room.
Bear in mind that quite a bit of Tesla profits are going into the Gigafactory, which is going to make them the largest producer of batteries in the world. So the cost for batteries for them go WAY down, and they can sell batteries to other companies for a profit. This is a big part of their plan. Their cars get cheaper to manufacture if they don't have to buy their batteries from third parties at a premium because they are sucking up a HUGE part of the market. If I want 70% of the batteries in the world, and others want those batteries, the battery manufacturer is going to charge me a premium for eating such a huge chunk of their capacity.
The Gigafactory is going to change the economy of scale for Tesla.
My brother in law has a Model S, and he has never had problems with range anxiety. He lives in southern England (Kent) and travels to London and Peterborough frequently and says it isn't a problem. From my point of view living in Southern Florida, there are charging stations all up I75 and Across the I10, so I could visit my parents in Houston without an issue. We have driven there several times, and we stop in the gas stations and truck stops and usually spend 20 minutes or so getting drinks, hitting the restroom, or grabbing a sandwich, so the charging time would not be a huge issue. Maybe a slight inconvenience if I have to waste another 10 or 15 minutes, but for the fuel savings I would gladly do it.
The difference between a career and a job is about 20 hours a week.
