Binging PowerShell

I posted recently about PowerShell help information being available in the Visual Search galleries on Bing - http://msmvps.com/blogs/richardsiddaway/archive/2010/04/19/powershell-on-bing.aspx

The URLs are available to find this directly.  For the time being its only available on the US version of Bing but if you are using PowerShell v2 you can do this

001
002
if ($psculture -ne "en-US") {Start-Process http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=190436}
else {Start-Process http://www.bing.com/visualsearch?mkt=en-us&g=powershell_cmdlets}

 

The culture is checked to see if you are in the US and if so you are pointed straight to Bing. otherwise you are directed to the US version of Bing. As the PowerShell reference is rolled out on other versions of Bing you can always alter the comparison to test your culture – change it to $psuiculture which will probably return en-US.
