Windows Powershell RC1

For those of you who have been living on Mars (no, that's not the abbreviation of Multiple Active Result Sets in ADO.NET 2.0): Monad aka MSH has been renamed to Windows PowerShell and last week the RC1 release of the product became available on http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=2B0BBFCD-0797-4083-A817-5E6A054A85C9&displaylang=en. The documentation pack for RC1 is also available via http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=B4720B00-9A66-430F-BD56-EC48BFCA154F&displaylang=en. Have fun!

My only annoyance with this release is the more difficult name to type in order to launch the shell: msh.exe became powershell.exe which requires a bit more typing (also compared to cmd.exe). Maybe psh.exe would be a better choice? Notice the logo still has the letters MSH in it.

I'll post some stuff on the Windows PowerShell later on my blog.
