Purely out of curiosity, who is the inventor of the Windows PowerShell ? As I have seen it on every Windows machine. So could someone please give me an insight on who the inventor of the Windows PowerShell is?

I have read the help center and do realize that this is sort-of off topic.This topic may remain locked if you choose so.

Thank you for this information aswel but unfortunately I cannot "check" your answer as correct due to the following that Pradeep Kumar replied first. –  Petzl11 Dec 16 '13 at 13:12
