To DOS or to PowerShell… What way should we go??

Well, I was rooting for PowerShell to, in a way, to substitute "DOS prompt".  But, I will have to rethink this again. I’ve been using PowerShell for some time and have left the DOS shell thinking I don’t need it.  Of course, until I discover I can’t use the COPY cmdlet to merge a series of text files to create one file.  Yes, you create  script to do this also but why adding more complexity to the problem when it can be accomplished with one line of code. 

One thing for sure, PowerShell is here to stay and its evolution will not stop.
