This week at Microsoft’s TechEd IT forum Microsoft’s Bob Mugilia introduced a host of new Microsoft technologies.
One of the major announcements was that of PowerShell 1.0, a new command-line shell and scripting tool which lets IT managers control their Windows systems.

Formerly called “Monad”, PowerShell is the first major update to the Windows command line since Windows NT 3.5 back in 1995. PowerShell can do things such as navigate through SQL tables as if they were directories on a computer.
