Microsoft Windows PowerShell RC1.

Posted by David on July 2, 2006

This is old news I’m sure (well a couple of months old at least) but I just ran across it by chance and had to publish a link and some advice.

If you’re using Windows and want to control your computer easier and faster I highly recommend taking a look at Microsoft’s Windows PowerShell. You may have already heard of it by one of it’s many titles; Monad, Microsoft Shell, or MSH. If you want to know what it’s all about I recommend checking out the Wikipedia’s Windows PowerShell article.

I just installed it (after installing the required .NET 2) and haven’t learned anything about it with exception to the video I watched on Channel 9 which showed a demonstration of some of the abilities it had at the time. That video was enough to keep the name Monad in my head and keep me eagerly awaiting a chance to try it first hand. That chance has come and I’m taking it with the RC1 released 5/5/06 on an XP machine. I’d like to mention that I don’t have any subscription to Microsoft other than a standard Hotmail account so anyone can easily check it out.

Hopefully that’s news to someone, otherwise this is just another woot for another cool tool.
