Introduction

I remember the first time I got to play with Windows PowerShell—I had some spare time on my hands, and after reading a blog post, I quickly set off to download the unofficial pre-release bits that were available at the time. I originally had very low expectations about the tool—all I wanted was a shell that is up to par with its UNIX cousins. Boy, was I wrong! The moment I learned about object pipelines, I knew this tool was going to change the way I think about automating tasks on Windows. Fast forward a couple of months, and here I am, so much in love with Power- Shell that I even wrote a whopping 400-page book about it.
