PowerShell is 8 years old this month

Posted by: | November 14, 2014 Comments Off on PowerShell is 8 years old this month |

Strange as it may seem PowerShell 1.0 was release in November 2006. In that time we’ve had a lot of changes:

– PowerShell support added to all major Microsoft products – except Office!

– Third party adoption of PowerShell – I am now disappointed if a product doesn’t have PowerShell support rather than being surprised that it does


Version 2.0

– PowerShell remoting

– Background jobs

– More WMI cmdlets

– More cmdlets


Version 3.0

– CIM cmdlets

– CIM sessions


– PowerShell workflow


Version 4.0

– Desired State configuration


Version 5.)

– Oneget

– PowerShell get


The PowerShell community has grown phenomenally:

– powershell.org

– PowerShell Summits in North America & Europe

– User groups across the world


Really looking forward to the next 8 years
