Microsoft and ssh

Richard Smedley tweeted about this msdn page about the coming Microsoft implemented ssh. Those of us using other operating systems have been using ssh for many years and there's putty an implementation of it (not by Microsoft) for windows - ssh enables remote logins with secure authentication, public private keys etc, wonderful for managing systems you're not sitting at! Some quotes from that article (rememeber this is a page on msdn written by the team going to implement ssh):
As Microsoft has shifted towards a more customer-oriented culture.
as opposed to what they have been doing??!!
A follow up question the reader might have is When and How will the SSH support be available? The team is in the early planning phase, and there’re not exact days yet. However the PowerShell team will provide details in the near future on availability dates.
Finally, I'd like to share some background on today’s announcement, because this is the 3rd time the PowerShell team has attempted to support SSH.
If at first you don't succeed?
