I disagree; would it be Unix/Linux without a bourne/csh/bash/whatever shell? Would Win3.x/NT/Win10 be the same without CMD.EXE? I have built, developed in both, heavily, and I say that Unix/Linux without a shell is not really Unix. But the Windows without a shell may disadvantage admins, but wouldn't be missed by the vat majority of users.
