Powershell links (via: Scott Hanselmans 2011 Ultimate Developer and Power Users Tool List for Windows)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2012/04/06

If you like .NET and scripting, then PowerShell and the PowerShell Community Extensions is what you should try:

PowerShell – The full power of .NET, WMI and COM all from a command line. PowerShell has a steep learning curve, much like the tango, but oh, my, when you really start dancing…woof. I also use PowerShell Prompt Here. Its built into Windows 7, by the way.

  • I also recommend after installing PowerShell that you immediately go get PowerTab to enable amazing “ANSI-art” style command-line tab completion.
  • Next, go get the PowerShell Community Extensions to add dozens of useful commands to PowerShell.
  • Want a more advanced GUI for PowerShell? Get the free PowerGUI.

Thanks Scott for summarizing :)
