But why would you want to? And he obviously doesn't know about 'ls -l'

As to the WHY?, I can see wanting it installed on my work computer since it's a member of a AD Domain, it would make it easier/possible to get domain information and manage domain objects through powershell than bash. That's the ONLY reason I personally can come up with. I'm sure there's others.

And yeah, ls -l or even ls -al is a LOT easier to type out than Get-ChildItem. While I'm sure there are things that powershell can do more efficiently, using something that is actually harder in powershell than bash is a...poor...example.
