What is Monad (codename for the Microsoft Shell, MSH) ?

Microsoft are targetting release of Monad with Exchange 12 in the second half of 2006. At a later date Monad will be released in an undisclosed way to run on Windows. The currently anticipated supported versions of Windows are:

- Windows Longhorn - presumably both client (2006?) and server (2007?)
- Windows Server 2003 SP1
- Windows XP SP2

Monad is intended as an administration tool to allow command line management of Windows machines.

Monad will let you adminster (to currently undisclosed levels) things like:

- The Windows Registry, treating it like a file system
- Active Directory
- Running processes

Monad is designed to provide an easy upgrade path to C#.
