as all "portable" things microsoft created will actually work completely 
only in windows. anyway - i don't see any sense in using it if you are not 
forced to use windows.

if you are - it would be better to use windows for that.

scripting language are not made to be fast running, but to "mix" many 
other programs to get result fast and easy.
