just like the shell and perl can be used for scripting and system administration under linux/unix
which language is favourable for system administration under windows??

Windows doesn't actually have too much of scripting languages... Although there is Perl for Windows also, check http://www.perl.com/ . And the DOS shell.. well... it just is what it is.
I guess it depends on what you want to do. For any kind of text handling I would suggest NoteTab (http://www.notetab.com), it has got its own scripting language and it can run other scripts like Perl.

Windows has WindowsScriptingHost, which runs VBS, JS, WSH. it comes with win98 and above.
For windows administration the choice is VB script(m$ choice anyway)
There are quite a few sites dedicated too it.
