The most popular free PowerShell tool (or a set of two tools: PowerShell Script Editor/Debugger and Graphical Administrative Console) got downloaded more than half a million times. Wow…
You can actually track the download counter yourself when you go to PowerGUI downloads page:
Now, 500,000 downloads is not equal to 500,000 users. Someone could have tried it and may not be using it today (although I would recommend that you give it another try – we are getting better with each new release!) and this is total downloads number of all releases starting the first beta we made available in early 2007. So if you have been with us all these years we have probably counted you quite a few times here! 😉
But even with this disclaimer, 500,000 is a huge number! Thanks to everyone using the tool, participating in our online PowerShell community, submitting your PowerPacks to the add-on library, and just helping others on the discussion forum! It is a big day for all of us!
