14.3. Summary

Most, if not all, of the operations presented in this chapter can be performed using a mixture of preexisting Windows utilities and/or WMI scripts. PowerShell does nothing revolutionary here. Its goal is to unify the access to processes and services and creates a homogeneous environment that makes scripting a breeze. The cmdlets presented here are easy to learn and master, and that is the biggest step forward in system administration and automation.
