Are Windows administrators required to learn Linux and bash and curl, or can they use the skills they already have for +OpenStack administration? With PoshStack, they have a command line or scripting tool that suits the Windows DevOps world. More from +Don Schenck on the Developer Blog.
Here's PoshStack. OpenStack SDKs exist for several programming languages, including Python, Go, Ruby, and many more. For those who don't wish to write code, users in the *nix world can use Curl at the command line to perform operations. What about Microsoft Windows administrators?

And that’s growing by the day. It’s also the technology that ran parent company Walmart’s prodigious Cyber Monday and holiday season sales operations. If that’s not production, I’m not sure what is.

+Elijah Snyder The point was just because Walmart is doing something, doesn't mean it has any merit. Despite their amazing logistical system, Walmart makes some pretty bad technology decisions. This of course is not to discredit OpenStack or Rackspace. I just think that using Walmart as an example to try and give credibility to a new product probably is going to have adverse affects, if any.
