Minor nit.

The Microsoft world refers to commands placed into a file for automated execution as batch files. The Unix world refers to the same files as scripts. Most likely the difference is because Microsoft for most of its existence had limited control of execution flow built into its command processors, plus Microsoft had a strong alliance to IBM.

In contrast, the Unix world has traditionally integrated richer languages into its shells since early in its history.
