How to Install PowerShell on Fedora 35

- Advertisement -

Hello, friends. Although a few years ago, having a Microsoft product on Linux sounded crazy, the truth is that more and more applications are coming to our favorite operating system. Today, we’ll show you how to install Microsoft PowerShell on Fedora 35.

What is PowerShell?

Windows PowerShell is a task-based command-line shell and scripting language designed specifically for system administration. It was born in response to the absolute dominance of Linux in the server environment and to replace the old command prompt.

Thanks to PowerShell, it is possible to interact with other Microsoft products in a better way and to perform automation tasks with them.

It is based on the .NET Framework, and helps professionals to better interact with Windows environments and their tools. So if you’re a server administrator or server support professional, you’re likely to need PowerShell at some point.

Fortunately, we can install it on Linux and specifically on Fedora 35 which is a very popular and well regarded operating system in the community.

Let’s go for it.

Although it is not present in the official Fedora 35 repositories, we can add a Microsoft PowerShell repository to install it without any problems.

First, open your terminal and upgrade Fedora 35.

sudo dnf update

Thereafter, you need to add the GPG key from the PowerShell repository to the system
