Free Scripts. Get Your Free Scripts Here!

Microsoft has always, in my opinion, done a great job of supporting IT when it comes to scripting -- and all the work done on PowerShell is an indication of that.

Another indication is the recent launch of a new Web site with a bevy of scripts, all free for the taking.

Now if you think these scripts are all a heap of a junk, fear not. They are written based on what you, the IT pro, want, and Microsoft folks do all the heavy lifting.

So far there are 29 scripts for server and client products, plus some for Office 365 -- if you're so inclined.

Next year the action will really kick up with some 200 scripts planned.

Am I wrong to say Microsoft is generous in its support of scripting? You tell me at [email protected]
