Chewy WMI example

MOW has done it again with an excellent example of a PowerShell script which does some chewy WMI processing and takes advantage of the PowerShell capabilities.   http://mow001.blogspot.com/2006/05/powershell-export-shares-and-security.html


Quite a few of the current WMI examples are really trivial VBScripts using PowerShell constructs.  There is nothing wrong with that. 



  1. It highlights the fact that you can do VBScript style scripting using PowerShell
  2. We all spend the first 4-6 months of a technology written previous generation technology with the new tools.  I wrote Fortran using C before I “got it”.  Jim Waldo wrote a great paper (forever ago) about how he spent the first 6 months coding C using C++ before he started to “think objects”.

Check it out and if you aren’t already following MOW’s blog – you should.  It always as great stuff on it.
