I had a great time talking to Erik Meijer about PowerShell - what it is, how it works under the covers, why we do what we do and where we are going.

You can see the interview on Channel 9 HERE.

    Just to let you know you can keep your job.. As I am sure you know, but just forgot on the spot when you had Erik asking you the question about strings, ASCII is a proper subset of UTF-8 thanks to Ken Thompson and Rob Pike wanting UNIX to keep on trucking in a Unicode world..


  • Hi,

    First of all: PowerShell is Awesome. It fits uttery nice into the whole .NET world, and I think I'm falling in love. I have two questions for you guys though:

    1) Everyone I know who have tried PowerShell classifies the whole screenbuffer/windows-no-resize system as a bug. Why did you go with that inflexible solution, and are you guys fixing this (pretty obvious) bug in PS2?
