If you want something similar, look for perl-shell, python-shell or ruby-shell.

PowerShell may be the next generation of shells, but I hope not. For me the most valuable thing about using the unix command line tools is that they are constrained to produce and consume a very limited set of very simple, very consistent, and very structured text output/input.

OK, so it's not the same as the Windows PowerShell. Still, seems to have some similar
goals attached to it. Quite a cute environment, fairly easy to hack extensions to as well.
