it's a shame they don't have any plans to support BSD/Unix:

" A popular request the PowerShell team has received is to use Secure
Shell protocol and Shell session (aka SSH) to interoperate between
Windows and Linux – both Linux connecting to and managing Windows via
SSH and, vice versa, Windows connecting to and managing Linux via SSH.
Thus, the combination of PowerShell and SSH will deliver a robust and
secure solution to automate and to remotely manage Linux and Windows

j/k - it'll be great if they push their patches back to the openssh devs
imho and the code is of acceptable quality.
