PowerShell 1.0 was released in November 2006 and has already received over a million downloads. I recently came across an article published a few days ago where SearchWinIT.com interviewed Jeffrey Snover (creator/architect of PowerShell) where Jeffrey has confirmed that PowerShell 2.0 will have support for remoting. One of the primary limitations with PowerShell currently is that many of the existing Cmdlets and Providers are designed for local operation only. Those admins that wish to use it for remote operations are forced to either run the code on the actual remote systems, roll your own via WMI/.NET/COM or rely on third party remoting solutions such as the PowerShell Remoting project on CodePlex. I can’t wait to see what PowerShell 2.0 will bring. Exciting times ahead!
