Remember that weird Windows IT Pro contest in which they put PowerGUI against gmail, iTunes, and a thousand other free and open source products?
Well, the funniest part is – thanks to your support – we won the silver award in that huge category!
Here’s what the magazine had to say (and with which I happily agree!):
“There are a lot of PowerShell scripting and GUI tools on the market these days, but PowerGUI remains one of the best, and it’s free!” —Jeff James, editor in chief, Windows IT Pro
