What do you guys think of PowerShell? Does anybody here like to use it frequently?

I've seen pentesters using it but I personally think it's terrible.

Depends on what it is being used for. As with any language the more familiar I am with it the more I like it.

I've got to learn more and get better at it but so far I'm not too impressed. Probably will change my mind sooner or later when I get better at it.

Why terrible, any particular reason? If at all you are comparing with Linux or anything else?

Besides I just don't like the look and feel it's the problem with that execution policy stuff. When you can't run scripts and it triggers security alerts.

It doesn't feel nice to use in my opinion

It's Microsoft shit. Sure, it can do all the things, but do you want to learn that? Everyone knows linux shells and their scripting. If you had some bullshit job at a corporation where it was all Windows boxes, you'd pretty much have to know it and it would be handy but for us, nothing more than the basics.

powershell... ah yes, that weird ass language that looks like half of it was developed by people who love Java's camel case "DoSomethingThenThisOtherThing" stuff, the other half by people working on unix.

downloading a file to disk, "curl -o file https://foo.com/bar" is way too simple. it must be "Invoke-WebRequest -OutFile file https://foo.com/bar". want to redirect the output of a command in a file? "command > file.txt"... nope! It's "Command | Set-Content file.txt".

that's the reason nobody who's not absolutely forced to use it, uses it, and they just had to add proper linux to windows lol
