While not perl related, I'll say that the Cygwin (cygwin.org) bash shell 
generally does everything I need as I can use the same shell script on 
both Windows/Cygwin and Linux. Most of the supporting utils that you'll 
need are also available in Cygwin. Cygwin can also provide perl. :)

If you must stay with "generally native shells", I've found PowerShell 
interesting, although the learning curve was steep enough that I stopped 
looking at it after using it enough to get a feel for its capabilities.
