Hey, I *like* the Windows CMD shell. :-) Yes, it's very simple, when
stacked up against other scripting languages. But you can get Perl and
Python for Windows (I have both, altho - I don't know perl - I just
use it to run pre-written scripts, as - I'm guessing - a large number
of Linux users do; not everybody can be a coder ...). And the new
Windows PowerShell is supposed to be much more powerful.

There's lots of Open Source software available for all the platforms
now - Linux, Win, Mac. Choices are good things.
