Comment Re:"Anonymous platform moving away from anonymity" (Score 1) 68

Because of the geographic boundaries, it's useless for any of the 'connecting with other enthusiasts of my weird and potentially embarassing hobby/fetish/etc' applications of anonymity, since you can only interact with people in a fairly small area around you;..

You do not speak for myself, yeah. Us admins run Linux and *BSD ;-P

I'm a BSD head too but I did find that there is a lot of unixness in Powershell. Bruce Payette, co-designer of the PowerShell language and the principal author of the language implementation is also a Unix guy.

Try ls, cat, rm,mkdir, echo, more, chdir, etc in Powershell and you'll see that they are already aliased from the factory.

PowerShell is different but a very powerful tool when used on a networked system. You can fire off commands and inquires to the whole network with a single line. The add-on for Exchange can do some really cool things.

  It's really one of the better things to come out of MS if you in an Active Directory environment.
