    Hi!
    What is the PowerShell core 6.0? Is it a new .net framework or is it simply just PowerShell 6.0?
    I dont understand what is ment by core.
    Anyone care to explain?

    Best Regards,
    Sigurd Skauvik (IKT Spesialisten, Skauvik).

    It might be helpful to read https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/powershell/2018/01/10/powershell-core-6-0-generally-available-ga-and-supported/

    PowerShell Core runs on .NET Core. It is a different fork of the product than Windows PowerShell, which runs on full .NET.

      OK. So it say i can run both Core and PowerShell side by side.
      Do you have any idea if it will create a new Icon set for this?

    Additionally, https://powershell.org/2018/01/15/can-we-talk-about-powershell-core-6-0/.

    As for icons, I'd suggest installing into a VM and seeing if you're happy with it.

      If it is not inconvenient to ask, do you know how to make a $profile?
      I could do notepad $profile but the file does not exist..
