    Microsoft Windows PowerShell v1.0

    Microsoft Windows PowerShell command line shell and scripting language helps IT Professionals achieve greater productivity. Using a new admin-focused scripting language, more than 130 standard command line tools, and consistent syntax and utilities, Windows PowerShell allows IT Professionals to more easily control system administration and accelerate automation. Windows PowerShell is easy to adopt, learn, and use, because it works with your existing IT infrastructure and existing script investments, and because it runs on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server “Longhorn”. Exchange Server 2007, System Center Operations Manager 2007, System Center Data Protection Manager V2, and System Center Virtual Machine Manager leverage Windows PowerShell to improve efficiency and productivity.

    Well I'd compromise with 'as powerful'. Nice one MS. Reinventing the wheel 20 years to late.

    Re: Microsoft Windows PowerShell v1.0

    well i havent got much working yet, just messing with it
    but
    Code:
    PS C:\> foreach ($x in net view | findstr \\ {echo $x.remove(0,2)}
    gives a list of computers with the '\\' removed

    i got remove from here:
    http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...g_methods.aspx

    i suspect all these string methods would work, which could be pretty handy

    you can browse the registry from the command prompt as if it was a file system!

    you can create softlinks and aliases

    wmi integrated with a get-wmi command.

    piping seems to work a lot better
