The open source command-line shell from Microsoft called PowerShell Core received a snap-version for Linux OS. The tool is based on the .NET platform and works not only on the desktop, but also in the cloud, as well as on the "Internet of things" devices.
PowerShell is designed specifically for administrators of hybrid cloud systems and users who want to automate the management of the operating system and its programs.
PowerShell Key Features
Self-sufficient packages in the snap format work natively on popular Linux distributions, are updated automatically and provide a high level of security for users. According to the authors of the project, the snap-version is installed easier than classic applications, receives direct updates from Microsoft and provides flexibility when working with multiple operating systems.
Microsoft also published a preview version of the program for everyone who wants to try out the new features first. It is distributed as a separate package, so it can be used along with a stable release.
You can download both versions with the
snap install powershell -classic and
snap install powershell-preview -classic commands.
