The goal of PowerShell Core is to be the ubiquitous language for managing your assets in the hybrid cloud. That’s why we’ve worked to make it available on many operating systems, architectures, and flavors of Linux, macOS, and Windows as possible.

the future of PowerShell
when you might expect to start taking a dependency on PowerShell Core 6.0 in production
