PowerGUI 2.4 gets a great review by Windows IT Pro magazine

Review of PowerGUI - PowerShell script editor, debugger, custom development environmentIt’s not often that you get an independent product review with summary like this one:

PowerGUI Pro 2.4
PROS: Cost-effective; easy to install and use; removes barriers to implementing in-house PowerShell solutions
CONS: None to speak of
PRICE: $199 per installation
RECOMMENDATION: Get it, and use it. I’ve become addicted to PowerGUI Pro, especially the PowerGUI Script Editor

Yet, this is exactly what Windows IT Pro magazine has just published. And they were reviewing version 2.4 – without all the 3.0 functionality taking PowerGUI to the new level. Saying that I am excited would probably be an understatement.

And this is even better, Ryan Femling from Windows IT Pro was actually actively using the tool – rather than relying on some sort of vendor marketecture (I did not even know this review was in the works) and his review is solely based on his scenarios and applications he found to be important for his work.

Read full review here and I bet there is a good chance that you might learn a couple new things even if you are already an active PowerShell or PowerGUI user!

    The editor is great and 3.0 beta 2 is really looking good. I am struggling with the Version Control but certainly no reason to downgrade the advancements.

    I’d take any praise from someone who lets SCCM forcibly update machines in the middle of the day with a grain of salt. The gist of the review is “Autosave is great”
