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.

    How about;

    BOOSM - (Best Object Oriented Scripting Mechanism)

  • I think we should name him "Pipeline"

  • What about "Archie" or "ArchiPower" or "ArchiePower".  After all, he was invented by Archi(e)tects.
