PowerShell Core for linux
PowerShell Core will run in Windows Sever 2016 core that contains only the .net core.
Now that .net core is available for linux.. would nice to create and run powershell script on linux! Not asking to port all Microsoft cmdlets just basic one that allow to script things in linux like invoke-restmethod, etc

We would love to have PowerShell functionality when SQL Server is running on Linux.
Please make this!!! Powershell is much better than perl, bash, etc. for automation. Would be greate to run .ps1 scrips on linux to automate lot of things
We have powershell scripts that automates external systems like switches, SAN storage, windows servers using ssh, invoke-restmethod, etc and we would love to run them from a linux system.

Please make it so

+1, PowerShell is far superior to any other interactive shell available on linux (bash, zsh, fish, irb, ipython, etc.).
Tim Dunn commented
make it so!
CIM cmdlets. Must have CIM cmdlets...

This would be great. Cross-platform scripting will reduce development efforts for PowerShell's target users (IT administrators). It will also help ensure that bash (now going to be cross-platform) does not wipe out PowerShell (limited to Windows) which was what I worried about as soon as WinBash was announced.
No, this will distract the PowerShell team at Microsoft. Please focus all resources on making PowerShell the best it can be on Windows. The Linux community will never abandon Python, Perl, Bash or Ruby for PowerShell simply because PowerShell comes from Microsoft, so this will end up being a waste of resources and a dropped project three years later. Linux is not object-oriented like Windows, so PowerShell is not a good fit anyway.
anything that make my life and crossplatfroming easier. Great idea.

This is a MUST !!!!
I wait for this for years ! There is simply no alternative to Powershell in Lunux world. If I have to see a bash script one more time in my life I will cut myself. Python, ruby etc. are great, but are not shell languages.
Furthermore, since Posh is my way to automate all development things (CI, CD, tests, server setup, tool instalation etc.) my x-platform development would simply not be the same without Posh on Linux.
I also think that DSC which is now implemented in Python would benefit a lot from this.
I work with a bunch of Linux servers, but to be honest I don't see the value in providing Powershell for Linux. I would not at all be opposed to the idea if it were a normal byproduct of porting .net etc. to Linux, but I don't think developer time should be invested in it to the detriment of other, more important features.
Linux with its file based configuration and myriad of little utilities really lends itself to administration with bash/python/puppet and related tools. I really don't see what powershell could bring to the table here without a massive investment in the related APIs. If anything, I think it would be more valuable to provide a stable WMI/WBEM/CIM implementation for Linux, such that management of Linux servers is possible with existing tools from the windows side.
Given that powershell and/or windows will get native openssh in a while, a move in this direction makes even less sense - at least to me.
Also please keep in mind that this thread was linked on reddits powershell subreddit, so the vote count here may may not be representative of the actual interest in this feature in relation to the other feature requests here on uservoice.
Please dearest god in the nearest sky give me this. I was looking forward to Bash to hack things together to manage Linux using bash in a hack-y way with PS, but bringing PS to Linux? I literally creamed.

Please, please, please do this...

Oh my god, i wish...

This would be awesome. I'd use powershell a lot more if I could use it on both platforms.
It's my greatest wish to utilize powershell's syntax and object manipulation for automation.

Very neat idea - would be a big push for Microsoft in the "use the tool you like the most" world that most of *NIX users are accustomed to.
