We would have all wanted powershell there by default in 2008, but the
main reason we can't is dependencies. Win2008 is designed to be as light
as you want, and because Powershell Relies on the dotnetframework, it
has a huge stack of dependencies that are options , the dotnet framework
has windowsforms tightly integrated and that relies on a huge section of
the graphical subsystem etc etc etc.
