And the winner is PowerGUI

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

And my congratulations to 14 other product teams from Quest winning in multiple other categories – great job by everyone and a reminder of the comprehensiveness of the product set we have here:

In Windows It Pro’s Community Choice Awards:

    This is expected. Since I have started working with PowerGUI and other Quest Software tools for PowerShell I found that they are very useful and help us to solve many routine tasks and save a lot of time and money. And I hope that Quest Software will continue current course to perfect their tools.

    As always enjoy the automation of tools within the Windows-based, .NET aware, WPF accessible, multi-processes on the same IP/Port usage, admin’s automation tools, PowerShell and PowerGUI! © Flowering Weeds & Sysadmins LV
