Why can't Powershell go full screen and full maximised? I think it's stupid, and horrible for people that use console based applications, that would love to go full maximised like you see in Unix, Mac OS, Linux, rather than limiting it to what it currently does like crappy CMD.exe

Full immersive full-screen mode? Well if full screen like nothing else on the screen isn't possible. What about just making the powershell full maximised on the screen, rather than just partial, or barely any like CMD.exe?

The PowerShell console host cannot be changed to enable full screen functionality due to limitations inherent in the console subsystem. However, a fully immersive full-screen mode could be added to the ISE. If you would like this capability in the ISE, please vote on this Connect suggestion.

The reason powershell has the same limitations as cmd.exe is because they both use the windows console subsystem. This has nothing to do with powershell. I do agree with your basic premise though.
