PowerShell Core and PowerShell what is the difference?

PowerShell Core 6.0 is a new edition of PowerShell that is cross-platform (Windows, macOS, and Linux), open-source, and built for heterogeneous environments and the hybrid cloud.

The goal of PowerShell Core is to remain as compatible as possible with Windows PowerShell. PowerShell Core uses .NET Standard 2.0 to provide binary compatibility with existing .NET assemblies

Microsoft will not replace the standard PowerShell by PowerShell Core. Both will coexist side by side until further notice.
