Automating the world one-liner at a time…
I’m always impressed by the level of creativity of the people in the PowerShell community. I remember having my socks knocked off the first time I saw what SoftwareFX did with PowerGadgets. I could not believe the things that they were doing. In fact I couldn’t even figure out how they were doing some of them!
Well the superstars at SoftwareFX have engaged their creative sides once again, this time to help Haiti. They have just announced the PowerShell Haiti Relief Offer where they are offering a copy of PowerGadgets for 50% off and will contribute all the money to organizations helping Haiti (FoodforthePoor.org, Worldvision.org and Unicef Unites States Fund).
If you’ve never taken a look at PowerGadgets – you definitely should. They are stunningly good. They look so good that I used them during a keynote demo for Bob Muglia at TechEd Barcelona a few years ago. People look at these are just start drooling. It’s messy, it’s disgusting but it’s also effective. :-)
After you check them out, you should go check our their special offer. It provides all the details of the deal including the fact that is a very limited time offer. Given the situation on the ground in Haiti – that makes total sense.

Check out a few examples:
It's very nice to have'em. But last update was on 2008. So interested, is upgrade planned and does PowerShell2 supported out-of-the-box?
Keep your eyes open, you may see something new this year...
The current version of PowerGadgets works great with PowerShell v2.
I am also wondering if you have any upgrades planned.
