During the recent PowerShell security discussion Rod linked to this interesting scripting survey which he has set up.
Although PowerShell is obviously not even close to VBScript in popularity, according to this survey it already holds 3rd place as “most favorite scripting language” and is almost on the same level as Batch.
This is a fairly good result for the technology which has not yet become available out of the box in Windows! Would be interesting to repeat the survey in a couple of years. Any bets? 😉
