Unlike most shells, which accept and return text, Windows PowerShell is built on top of the .NET Framework common language runtime (CLR) and the .NET Framework, and accepts and returns .NET Framework objects. This fundamental change in the environment brings entirely new tools and methods to the management and configuration of Windows.


Can somebody explain?

Probably for portability and for the developer experience.

.NET Core works on Linux so they might have logically thought that windows developers writing cross platform tools would like a shell they are familiar with.

It's just a guess :-)
