Just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and an amazingly Happy New Year! 2007 has been absolutely fantastic for us with both AD cmdlets and PowerGUI skyrocketing from first basic betas to featurerichness, great reviews and becoming tools used in real enterprise environments.
Thank you all for your participation in the community and for helping us build this great software! See you in 2008.
(You’ve got the Christmas/New Year wallpaper from our team already, right?)

Next month TechNet Magazine is featuring PowerGUI in their Toolbox section.
Greg Steen has put together an excellent review of PowerGUI summarizing all the core functionality the tool has and as well as the usage scenarios for it.
Check out the review yourself – the online version is already live!

We need your help and a couple of minutes of your time. Please go to this survey page and answer 5 simple questions on how you use PowerGUI today and where we should take it in the future.
As you know, our goal with PowerGUI is to keep it free (and as much as possible registration-free as well). However, we need information on how you are using it so we know where to concentrate our development efforts. This survey is one of the ways you can help us with that.
Finally, Quest and Microsoft are looking for joint case-study opportunities around PowerGUI and Windows Server 2008. If you may consider participating in one of those, please indicate it in the survey so we can follow-up and make you one of IT Heroes of tomorrow.
We really tried to keep the survey as short and straight-forward as possible, so we hope you can spare a minute or two on the survey page as a way to support our efforts on maintaining the free PowerGUI tool we all love and use. Thanks!

We’ve just got a great Christmas present which in the best traditions of the holiday we want to share.
Here’s a Christmas/New Year/Seasonal holiday present from Andrey (the author of the original PowerGUI wallpaper) – holiday edition of the wallpaper with snowflakes, Christmas tree, and the good old PowerGUI train.
Go get it from the PowerGUI downloads page – get yourself some of the holiday mood at your desktop!

Platforma 2008 (aka TechEd Russia) team has just published the results of attendee surveys and the PowerShell session I did at the event got named the best of the show!
This is very exciting and a great honor for me. Microsoft Russia has done an incredible job putting together a great conference, so being named the best at an event like still feels a bit surreal.
Here’s the Russian Platforma 2008 results announcement, and an automated English translation.
