  • PowerShell 1.0 Released To Web

    While I can't say I've done much scripting, this does look interesting. Here's some official microsoft links, and some other links about it.

    For XP, Vista, and Server 2003:

    Windows PowerShell Information and Download
    Microsoft Windows PowerShell command line shell and scripting language helps IT Professionals achieve greater productivity. Using a new admin-focused scripting language, more than 130 standard command line tools, and consistent syntax and utilities, Windows PowerShell allows IT Professionals to more easily control system administration and accelerate automation. Windows PowerShell is easy to adopt, learn, and use, because it works with your existing IT infrastructure and existing script investments, and because it runs on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server “Longhorn”. Exchange Server 2007, System Center Operations Manager 2007, System Center Data Protection Manager V2, and System Center Virtual Machine Manager leverage Windows PowerShell to improve efficiency and productivity.

          Hmmm... as long as we're adding to this thread I looked at each link but didn't see the following listed:

          Microsoft TechNet PowerShell Script Center:

          That link leads to such wonderful things as:
          Free Books and Courseware Files
          Windows PowerShell Toolbox
          Windows PowerShell Owner’s Manual
          VBScript to Windows PowerShell Conversion Guide
          A Task-Based Introduction to Windows PowerShell
          Windows PowerShell Script Repository

          And articles like:
          Searching Active Directory with Windows PowerShell
          Accessing WMI from Windows PowerShell

          There's also info on the PowerShell 2.0 CTP... do I smell a PowerShell 2.0 sticky brewing?
