I'm a Powershell fan (a recovering LogParser junkie - check out this mighty fine mix from MS.COM operations) and am delighted that the team has delivered their V2 CTP for public consumption. All the standard caveats for CTPs apply. More on the Powershell blog:

GUI, remoting or hosting apis, hmmm? What do you like?
Update from the readme:
