First Glimpse at PowerShell v3

I finally got a hold of Windows 8 laptop (thank you Microsoft!), connected a keyboard, launched PowerShell and here are the first few results before I run to the dinner.😉

First off, let’s check the version:

PS C:\> $host.Version

Major  Minor  Build  Revision
-----  -----  -----  --------
3      0      -1     -1

So far so good…

When I tried to get all modules, at some point the operation failed but a lot still got added:

PS C:\> (Get-Module -All).count
234
PS C:\> (Get-Module -ListAvailable).count
44

A lot of the modules though seem to be automatically generated from CIM classes:

PS C:\> Get-Module -All

Looking at the standard PowerShell modules we get:

PS C:\> Get-Module Microsoft.PowerShell.*

Manifest   Microsoft.PowerShell.U... {Add-Member, Add-Type, Clear-Variable, Compare-Object...}
PS C:\> (get-command -Module Microsoft.PowerShell.*).count
248

Here’s a quick list of all the standard cmdlets in the box at the moment:

PS C:\> get-command -Module Microsoft.PowerShell.* | sort module, noun | format-table ModuleName, Name -AutoSize
