Getting started with Powershell on Linux

First of all, simply don’t believe anyone who says that it’s hard to install Powershell on Linux.

Installing on a Red Hat clone (eg. Centos 8)

This wont take long.

curl https://packages.microsoft.com/config/rhel/7/prod.repo | sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/microsoft.repo
sudo yum install -y powershell

That’s it

Installing on Ubuntu 20.04 and above

sudo snap install powershell --classic

Again, that’s it.

In both cases you can then launch the shell via :

$ pwsh
PowerShell 7.2.0
