I downloaded the Windows Server 8 beta overnight and spun up a virtual machine. We get PowerShell v3 beta plus and whole host of modules

This is a totally vanilla install with no features or roles installed. The RSAT tools aren’t installed either. 

The modules in italics are part of the base PowerShell install.   By comparison this is what is available from PowerShell v3 installed on Windows 7

Thats a lot of PowerShell to look at.  I’ll look and see what Windows 8 has by default
