    You could also add (from this ning-nongs view) that while powershell wanted Perls whipitupitude (the term used in Bruce Payettes) book, powershell seems ugly and verbose by comparison.

    I am not aware of another language with Perls 'helpfulness' or to use the more PC terms, conciseness and flexibility.
