    Introducing PowerShell (MSH)

    PowerShell is built on top of the .NET Framework and replaces the old process of using text to pass data like the current CMD shell. PS is a scriptable language that provides an alternative to the manual changes you make through a GUI. It is more powerful than Perl or WSH, although those two technologies can help with automating a lot of tasks. Let’s look at what PS is and is not and hopefully it will help clear things up a bit.

    Powershell

    is NOT a programming languge like C## et al.
    is a scripting language like VBS, WSH, Perl
    is NOT a replacement for CMD.EXE - is an administrative tool
    is NOT going to replace all your system administration tools
    is going to change the way you administrate your network
    (Source)

    You can download powershell from here: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scr.../download.mspx

    After installing it, go to start–> run –> powershell.

    I've only looked for a few minutes at PS but I'm positive perl is a lot more powerful. Nothing beats perl. It's called the Swiss Army Chainsaw for a reason

    I've been learning the Powershell for the past 6 months or so... since we decided to move to Exchange 2007.

    The Powershell is NOT more powerful than pearl... but it is easier to learn. It's actually quite difficult to do simple things... like query snmp or script a ftp session. You can do it, but you have to pay for the cmdlet set from a third party... BOO! And at $99 per workstation no less! http://www.nsoftware.com/powershell/netcmdlets/

    It is ok for some things... but I don't think it can EVER be called more powerful.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    More powerful than the standard cmd shell.. Scripting that is just plain masochistic
