SSH protocol in Windows ecosystem -- PowerShell RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I guess the lack of out-of-the-box support for the open protocol, such as SSH and SFTP in Windows shells is one the main reason the PHP, Ruby and Python developers don't feel nativity in Windows ecosystem.


    Windows Azure supports SSH, so what's stopping Windows PowerShell and Command Prompt teams to implement these proven and massively adopted protocols in their commands bucket? Is it due to any legal (open source licensing) issue?


    Since TFS team is pushing git support in upcoming release of Visual Studio, it would be nice if Windows guys implement SSH and SFTP in Windows vNext.
