At long last, Windows has a real, power user’s shell; and it’s been officially done. PowerShell is the new, highly flexible and extremely powerful shell for Windows (XP SP2+). From my first experiences with it, I’m quite impressed. This is a great tool for developers, system administrators, and just about any other power user.
While PowerShell doesn’t offer the power or flexibility that a traditional *nix shell does, the power is impressive. I’ve been looking forward to this being released, now that I’ve played with it, I’ve even more excited. This is a great tool, just trust me, get it, you need it.
