Just when you think it can't get any better, MOW releases a new version of his Tab Expansion scripts and blows the top of your head off.

Shell or Scripting Language – It’s Shimmer!

Michael has a blog entry HERE where he opines: Actually, you could also say, it is an introduction into Windows Powershell from Microsoft.
