Why PowerShell?

If you have been working in a Microsoft environment for the past few years, you may have seen or heard about PowerShell. You may even remember its original code name, Monad. It may have been discounted as “yet another scripting language” and put aside to look at later. You may have even thought, why reinvent the wheel?

In other words, your environment was running smoothly, you were busy, and you had no time to learn the language. You may have decided to wait to see whether there would be a version 2 and whether Microsoft was really serious about this language. Well, here we are with version 2, and PowerShell is getting better than ever. Microsoft and communities such as http://powershellcommunity.org/ are creating native PowerShell commands and providers as well as the documentation for scripts to make your everyday work with PowerShell even easier. So, you are not in this alone. The community is growing and vibrant!
