As much as I may not like Windows, PowerShell is pretty stupidly powerful. There's a reason why people try to replicate some of its functionality or concepts.

Speaking of non-POSIX shells, I stumbled upon this last week:

Windows Terminal Preview 1.18 Release
Any specific complaints? I think most of the remaining issues are all tracked in microsoft/terminal#8888.
Pretty confident that you can use the _preinstallkit.zip from the releases to install on Windows Server 2022+
What have you tried? Did you install from the release? https://github.com/microsoft/terminal/releases/tag/v1.17.11391.0
You can manually install Terminal on Windows Server, just not through the Store. You need to install the GitHub release and may need to install VC++ prerequisites. https://github.com/microsoft/terminal/releases/

Terminal app built over WebGPU, WebAssembly and Rust
As it turns out, the thing Muratori suggested absolutely _didn't_ work for a large variety of edge cases. That was experimented with for a couple releases before being even _more_ substantially rewritten: https://github.com/microsoft/terminal/pull/14959
I hate that what was definitely intended as a joke originally turned into this massive miscommunication and flame war. Admittedly tone is hard to convey on the internet, and italics is no replacement for a good old fashioned ":P". But this could have been a good place for everyone to work together, rather than flame one another.
It's certainly an experience that everyone can learn from.
Is Apple making Microsoft look good by comparison, again? (-:
Microsoft Terminal has a whole open GitHub issues system to itself.
It may have something to do with this mind blowing exchange between Casey Muratori (a highly experienced game engine developer) and the Microsoft Terminal team.
It really highlighted how crappy software gets written in large corporations. They told him rendering monospaced fonts on the GPU would involve a multi year PHD research project.
Apparently they then went on to infiltrate his discord server so they could ask questions. Then write up a blog post calling the change "trivial".
Microsoft adding RAR, 7z, Gz and more to the native ZIP extractor, and finally having it use more than 1 CPU core.
