    yep the console subsystem of windows still sucks but its the shell language and object pipeline that really makes powershell powerful. but if you do want a great console experience then check out powershell plus.

    You can type ‘exit’ to close the shell…

    That is 5 times as much typing as I have to do on any other operating system.
