“Monad” Shell is a new interactive command-line from Microsoft. In my earlier post last month said when we can see the Monad. Finally Monad Beta2 is released today and its avaialable for download from here. I just downloaded Monad and installed in on my Vista as well on Windows 2003 Server and found nothing interesting, except that it allows ‘ls’ syntax now (during the install on Vista I found it created a folder on the desktop and then removed it automatically after the installation is done, but I did not notice it after the reinstall, also it refreshes the desktop once the installation is done).
You can find few screen shots below:
In screenshot2 you can find that “dir /help” is not working; means old command line options format (/) is not recognized. I could not able to find any doc on new features to explore, but worth to try. If you have any questions, feel free to send it to Monad team here. Once I find any help doc, will explore more and update back. [Submitted by Kris]
