Screencast: Using Windows PowerShell

Windows PowerShell in my opinion is the most important tool for administrators that we have released in many  powershellyears.  It helps to automate the tasks that administrators are faced with every day.  I’ve been talking with customers for awhile now about Windows Server 2008 and PowerShell is always apart of sessions and demo’s.  So I thought it would be good to capture the demo’s I’ve built up over time and make available to you some of the files I use on a regular basis.  There are also some resources below for you to go and find out more.

If you want to watch the screencast in Windows Media Player click on this link.

    It is actually Bruce Payette's book, who is also on the PowerShell team.

  • Cool demo... One question... where can I get that spinning earth program you have running on your desktop?

  • The spinning globe is a Dreamscene so you'll need Vista Ultimate to use.  You also have to install Deskscapes which you can get at http://dream.wincustomize.com
