Microsoft PowerShell goes open source and lands on Linux and Mac

When it comes to the PowerShell open source project, Microsoft will be accepting contributions to it through GitHub. Right now, the only people who can commit changes to PowerShell work for Microsoft, but Snover said that he expects to have committers from the community working on the project in the future. 

Speaking of those contributors, Snover said that Microsoft plans to make PowerShell for Linux generally available during the first half of next year, but its release date will be determined by when members of the community think it's ready.
