LXer: cmd.exe for Linux zealots

Published at LXer:

My goal, Dear Reader, is not to prove anyone, that Windows’ command-line features are identical to those of Linux. To be honest, this text does not aim to cover the Windows shell features, at all. It is not a goal, it is a measure. The goal is to present you with a few thoughts about “the human nature”, as would Agatha Christie say.

You can also have Powershell - which has its own long-winded commands (i.e. get-childitem), but these commands have built in aliases which are the old familiar unix commands: get-childitem = ls.
I've got Powershell, but haven't used it much, or RTFM, so can't judge how it measures up to bash, zsh, or whateversh.
