Chatroom Banter

RichPrescottWife: ## Ed, Any thought to doing the Scripting Games as an ongoing monthly series to give people more time to play?

FishTender27: ##Are the challenges still available if I wanted to take a crack at them now that I am not as busy?

Matt__: ##how can I get V3?

ToENuFF: I don't always write scripts, but when I do, I use PowerShell!

JHofferle: "I don't always use a CLI...but when I do...I prefer PowerShell."

alexandair1: ## who is an author of the third one?

jsnover: ### Do Lido and Rohn use the script center?

DonJones: Hi, this is Don Jones - I once wrestled an aligator in order to learn his secrets about PowerShell

Schlauge: ## what tool do Rohn and Lido use to code?  ISE?  Powershell Plus? PowerGUI

RichPrescott: ## ScriptCenter Repository rocks the scripting world.

RichPrescott: ## And I rock it.

JHofferle: Script Explorer http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29101

ScriptingWife: You guys should have lots more sympathy for me now. I live with this 24/7 LOL

FishTender27: ## Ed's got so much energy... how many red bulls a day does he drink?

RichPrescott: ## @Jsnover: Is there any functionality that you wanted added in Windows Server 2012/Win 8, but were unable to see it implemented?  Do you see the community filling the gaps with scripting?

Schlauge: ## why is everyone pushing v3 so much when it's not even offical

ToENuFF: ## Any plans to finish the ISE host so that it meets all of the host reqs?  Start-Transcript, etc

Schlauge: ## my concern is that so much is said that dont use for PROD becuase it may not work later...

ToENuFF: @halr900 @richprescott fairer question:  What are you looking forward to seeing come from the community?

MarkDW_: Will there be a WOA/WindowsRT version of Powershell?

MarkDW_: ## Do you think developers will do Metro apps for Windows Server 2012?

BartekB: ## any chance to move tiles around in server manager?

MarkDW_: ## Please expose the Powershell commands in the new server manager

RichPrescott: ## Any feedback on the Connect item to expose the PowerShell commands being run in Server Manager?

MAC_: ## It seems like there are 3 versions of 2012 Gui remove the gui and core is that the case?

MarkDW_: ## Since server manager is based on Powershell, why not expose the commands that are being run under the covers?

Jaykul: The workaround for long paths is http://poshcode.org/2488
