it is a different language.

If you are confident with vbs you may not need PS.

In PS you can run other tools (like WMI) to do their special stuff, which is a bit more complex in VBS.

PS is the Microsoft try to get a /bin/bash under Windows without using non-MS tools (like cygwin)

  • where can we get the tutorials for Power shell scripting
    • of course the best info you can find at Microsoft:
      And also a sheet sheet:

  • "Learn Windows PowerShell in a Month of Lunches" is a good book start with .. Where you can get it ... Google .. :) .. Powershell seems to be taking pace as it is now implemented in app -v 5.0 .
