“My observation is that the show is not really about learning Powershell anymore is it? It’s more a Powershell magazine now, with the interviews and prizes and all that jazz. When was the last time you reviewed a Powershell book? Holger Switzenbergers Powershell book came out and didn’t get a mention… Not a complaint though!! I LOVE IT the way it is but I’d quite like more Powershell instructional stuff too.”
