It's a necessity. With so many GNU/Linux deployments on Azure (~60% was
the figure I heard) MS has no option. People need the tooling and whilst
PowerShell's ability to slam objects around as params/results and do RPC
etc /should/ make it a slam dunk...the reality is, it's a sack of shit.

Trying to get it to do remote connect & execute is an exercise in
frustration and futility (I still use PsExec because, well, WinRM is a
bugger). SSH just works, y'know? Even with the grief over things having
spaces in their path.

Will this new GNU/Windows contain SSH? Dunno, don't care. Cygwin FTW!
