What Others Think

I don't understand why this command got voted down. It's a legitimate command line that's useful. Being "windows only" shouldn't be a pejorative; how many linux only or mac os x only commands are there on this site again?? +1

Voted up, because it is useful, after all.

It's not a command but a shortcut to an application. It launches a GUI, IMO it does fit in the same CLI category as winword.exe would
