Canonical introduced on Friday that Microsoft’s PowerShell Core is now available on Linux platform as a Snap. From a file: If you don’t seem to be acquainted, a Snap is basically a packaged model of a program that may be simply put in on many Linux distributions. Many see it as the way forward for Linux, as it has the prospective to scale back fragmentation. “Built on the .NET Framework, PowerShell is an open source task-based command-line shell and scripting language with the goal of being the ubiquitous language for managing hybrid cloud assets. It is designed specifically for system administrators and power-users to rapidly automate the administration of multiple operating systems and the processes related to the applications that run on those operating systems,” says Canonical.
