Microsoft: Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, my PowerShell has gone RC

I really...

...need to stop being lazy and try and learn Powershell. I was looking back at the Commodore 64 the other day and thought "I want to finally learn Basic" :) why? What use will it be, I should really learn Powershell.

The only thing is sometimes the Powershell environment annoys me. Only just having discovered the & command in cmd so you can do

Gpresult /h a.html & a.html

Which runs the first command and then the 2nd. Couldn't do this in Powershell. Then someone pointed out you do

gpresult /h a.html; .\a.html

Which wasn't obvious to me considering Powershell had alias for other cmd commands
