Automating the world one-liner at a time…
Have you see the totally cool new ads for Windows server 2008 at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/en/us/serverunleashed/default.html ?
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.

Master Shell: the command version of Halo's Master Chief
It's a better name for such "hardware"!
Ok, I still like Zen, but I just watched some more of the videos and came up with another name that might be more appropriate: Dexter.
Meet Dexter. IT zen.
You should call him Power Bill
Mine seems to have gone missing
Obviously, it's name is Blade! ;-)
Uhhm...... How bout
MO for short.
I think these comments illustrate why mascots are best left to products marketed to children.
Hey, where did my entry go?
I really liked Powie
Slash...powered by Windows Powershell
Talking about Monads... Why not name him Leibniz?
Powie is nice! But is it true, that there is a way of installation of the server without gui AND without powershell? Why is that?
Maybe Tera Mips... or HiTee... or Darth Server... ;-)
don't try to find a name for him, Bender is a real name jf him.
