Support other mainstream, cross-platform scripting language like Python and Ruby
Other cross-platform languages like Python and Ruby have served as automation and orchestration scripting languages of choice for much longer than PowerShell. A large community of users already know and use Python on Windows, Linux, and Mac systems. Its okay to invent something new with Powershell, although it would be even better to embrace and support existing languages like Python for IT Automation.
We are working on supporting python and bash runbooks.

Have added this separate idea but I guess it's really part of this:
PowerShell Core/6 seems to be the future. It's frustrating developing something locally in it and then finding it won't work the same way due to PowerShell 5 being used in Azure Automation.
