Guests – Ferdinand Rios and David Corrales from SAPIEN
<ScriptingWife> For anyone new to the chatroom, please place ## in front of questions for the guests so Jon and Jason can easily see them, THX
<randal_hicks> ## would you say Primal Script userbase were among the core early adopters of Powershell?
<MattHitchcock> ## Are SAPIEN concerned that if Microsoft were to start building more support into Visual Studio for PowerShell (and many of us believe they should), it might start removing a lot of the requirements people have for tools such as PowerShell Studio?
<MattHitchcock> ## Good point raised about WPF, was there a reason PowerShell Studio uses WinForms and not WPF as well? (or it might now and I may have missed that?)
<marc_carter> ## Is it too late in CY2014 for User Groups to get Dr. Rios scheduled for visit? We had him scheduled earlier but bad weather didn’t allow it to happen.
<marc_carter> ## I’ve been reading up on and would like to set up an internal PowerShellGet repository. Does sapien have products to help facilitate this or similar?
<Dave_Wyatt> ## Why are the price points of the Sapien tools so high? PrimalScript and PowerShell Studio are nearly $400 apiece, more expensive than professional versions of Office, Windows and Visual Studio. Is this targeted at corporate customers, or individuals?
<marc_carter> ## that concept would work well in our environmet. only 2-3 scripters and 10-14 sys admins who don’t want to climb the learning curve. ability to easily create apps for internal modules would be nice
