I finally got on the ball and downloaded Powershell V2.0 CTP and am starting to play with it now. You can download all that you need from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=7C8051C2-9BFC-4C81-859D-0864979FA403&displaylang=en You will need to unistall Powershell Version 1 in order to install version 2.0. I just installed this and have not had much time to chek it out but so far it is looking good. Looks like more cmd-lets and now have remoting functionaltiy which is one thing that I really wanted in Version 1.
Version 2.0 also comes with a graphical interface in order to write scripts and not need a third party utility such as Primal Script or Powershell Plus. As I learn more and play with this I will post what I think about it. Remember that this is a preview edition and is not ready for production at this time. I would only install this in Testing environments at this time. Features can still be added, subtracted, or changed from this version so be careful with it.
