Today at the keynote at ITForum in Barcelona, we announced the official release of Windows PowerShell 1.0!  

For those of you unfamiliar with Windows PowerShell, it is a best of breed next-generation commandline shell designed from the ground up to be flexible and powerful while still remaining easy to use. Many thanks go to our friends at for coming all the way to Barcelona to show how they’re using Windows PowerShell in production today for the mission critical task of maintaining and managing the second busiest website in the world.
