Jeffrey Snover gave a talk on the origins of Powershell. There was an attitude that terminal is just not the way of Windows. The way of Windows, is windows (duh!)

So this attitude would say that Windows does have a basic editor - which is Notepad - and it’s supported over Windows SSH - which is RDP.

And as he pointed out this does not scale, leads to all your systems being setup differently, etc so I’m glad the attitude has changed but seems a little of it persists.
