And finally… Best PowerPack Award ($500) – Jonathan Medd’s Exchange Server 2003!

Did you know you can do that much with PowerShell on Exchange 2003?

The competition was tough and the Citrix pack was a very close second, but when we counted the scores submitted by all the judges (Jeffrey Snover, Marco Shaw, Hal Rottenberg, Kirk Munro, and myself) Exchange 2003 was number one.

This is quite exciting because the work on the pack became a true community effort with Aleksandar and Shay contributing to the pack, and feedback and additional feature requests coming from the forums at powergui.org. Jonathan was the one of the first to publish the first version of his pack which enabled that participation from the community, and got all the folks still on Exchange 2000 and 2003 a PowerShell library they can start using right away to manage their environment!

Check out the winners and submit your packs for the second sprint (which ends September 30th).
