I’m all about negativity today. Sorry. Anyway, I’ve had something nagging at me for a while now and I think I’ve just figured it out. Powershellis Microsoft‘s answer to having a dumb commandline through the Win95 – Win2003 years and it’s quite powerful, as the name implies. Microsoft likes it so much that they makes most of the Exchange 2007administration efforts in the Exchange Management Shell, a derivative of Powershell that contains Exchange-specific cmdlets.
