Windows PowerShell


This weekend I installed SQL Server 2008 Express and one of the requirements for the install was to have Windows PowerShell. I had heard Scott Hanselman talk about it previously, but never tried it myself.

Today I tried it out for the first time, and after about 5 seconds I decided that it was a great product. The simple reason was that I typed ls and hit return, and it listed the folder contents for me. That is so sweet.

Previously I have had a small batch file named ls that did a dir, just to be able to list without having to think about it, but this is quite a bit nicer.
