Return To Shell

This Slashdot article talks about a job opening in Microsoft's "Next Generation Shell Team." They are "designing and developing a new command line scripting environment from the ground up." Joel Spolsky has written about how stupid it is to rewrite things "from the ground up," and Microsoft, having finally escaped the horror that is DOS (at least in the minds of most computer users - certainly not technologically), is seemingly backpedalling.

I think I'll stick with tcsh, bash, etc. After all, they're a bit more battle tested.
