HPC Visual Studio Command Line Compilation from Powershell
I admit to an almost perverse fondness for command line environments. So I decided to jump onto PowerShell as my default command line environment because its way more cool than the cmd shell and even a nerd with a penchant for undead languages sometimes worries about being cool to some tiny degree. Only...

One of the big challenges as we get close to shipping Windows HPC Server is closing the door on product changes.
