Have you see the totally cool new ads for Windows server 2008 at ?

This is one of the best things I think I've ever seen our Marketing dept ever developed and they feature this awesome looking robot:


3 cheers to the superstars in Microsoft Marketing!

I just LOVE this guy!  I've decided to declare him the informal PowerShell mascot.  Stick a flag on him - he's ours.  :-)

After all, what conveys automation better than a robot? 

The problem is that I can't think of a good name for him.  That's where you come in.  What should we name him?  (I'm open to being convinced that it is a her but if you watch the way this thing moves, I think you'll agree that it is a guy).

There is no prize besides fame and our eternal goodwill but it is a worthy thing to contribute to.

  • Emma's submission -- Autobot

    Aidan's submission -- Shrinky Pig 2000

  • My submission: "PowerShell Pete"

  • Этот робот с рекламного сайта Windows 2008 теперь является талисманом (”mascot”) PowerShell’а :) ...

  • I'd keep the name in the PowerShell commandlet format. I was thinking something like Ted-PowerShell.

  • Why not call him 'PoSH'?  'PoSH the Robot' has a nice ring to it.

  • It's pretty obvious that he's already been labeled "IT 24-7" (Schproder to his friends).

  • How about calling it 'Shelley'.

  • Excuse me?  It's just a friggin' robot.  Let's not slobber all over our blogs about a product that nobody is going to use in real production until Service Pack 1 arrives, probably early 2009.  Study it. Sure.  Understand it. Sure.  But keep your panties dry for cryin' out loud. :-)

    Excuse me.  I have some SharePoint workflow code to write now.

  • a PoSHy Bot !

    Greetings /\/\o\/\/

  • How about:


    Oh wait . . .

  • Probably not very creative, by I like PowerBot.

  • How about PoSH Spice.

    Ähmm, maybe that's already in use so not a good idea.

    No, it's a PoSH-Bot.

    a roPoSH?


  • Maybe, Robbie ?

    Or something link get-name?

  • Ok, "The Scripting Guy" team has Dr. Scripto

    This could be something like "AShellErator"

  • Being this a Microsoft world, I would also suggest something like:

    Microsoft Interactive Humanoid 2008 Ultimate Edition
