Canonical announced on Friday that Microsoft’s PowerShell Core is now available on Linux platform as a Snap. From a report: If you aren’t familiar, a Snap is essentially a packaged version of a program that can be easily installed on many Linux distributions.

It is designed specifically for system administrators and power-users to rapidly automate the administration of multiple operating systems and the processes related to the applications that run on those operating systems,” says Canonical.
