'Monad' scripting shell unlikely to debut in Longhorn

Yet another piece of technology originally expected to surface in Longhorn looks as if it won't make it into the product. The latest element to get the ax is "Monad," aka the Microsoft Shell (MSH) that Microsoft has touted as its alternative to the scripting shells that Unix and Linux programmers know and love.

Rumors that Microsoft officially had cut Monad from Longhorn began circulating last week. When asked last week if Monad was still slated to be part of Longhorn, the Windows client team declined to comment. A representative with the Windows Server team said that Microsoft had not committed to a ship vehicle for Monad.
