Doing a quick search on our site reveals several articles and forum posts regarding the new PowerShell functionality that comes shipped with Windows 7. Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting language designed for system administration and automation. Built on the .NET Framework, Windows PowerShell enables IT professionals and developers to control and automate the administration of Windows and applications.
If you have begun using PowerShell and become so attached to it that you cannot imagine life without – working on a computer (such as Windows XP) that does not have PowerShell seems not worth it. Wouldn’t it be great if you could just install PowerShell on your Windows XP computer ??
The good news is – You can!

This is where we store all our music, videos, images etc. On occasion you want to access some of this media, sitting at another computer. If you are at home, using Homegroup in Windows 7 is the ultimate solution (see this article by Rich).
But, What if, you are not at home?
The good news is that you can stream the music and videos from your home computer to your laptop over the Internet.
If you have a shared computer in your household or office you may experience that the free space on the hard drive gets smaller and smaller. Especially if you have a Tweens (Teens using the computer filling it up with music, pictures, downloads etc.) using it. There is a way to make sure every user has enough storage space – Disk Quotas.
