Automating the world one-liner at a time…
If you are reading this, you probably already use PowerShell but you might know someone that has resisted installing it and trying it out. Thomas Lee posted a blog HERE with a pointer to a Virtual PowerShell lab on TechNet. This allows you to Terminal Serve into a hosted virtual machine and kick the tires. In other words you get to run PowerShell without installing it.
Once they are done – they can install it. :-)
I didn’t know anything about this but we should try to get them to do this with V2 CTP3 – that would be cool.
Thanks for the pointer Thomas!

I assumed the PowerShell team had done this.
You guys should definitely talk to TechNet folks and see if you can get a HOL up on TechNet for CTP3.
And note that whilst you are running the lab, you have a fully functioning server that you can play with. You don't have to stick to the HOL script - you have the full time to play. Sadly, there's no network there, or a DC/SQL/Exchange server to play with, but that's worth asking for.
I agree but would like it to also include a section on internationization.
