      "The Powershell Tutorial has potential, however, I would like a more detailed explanation of why I'm doing things. Some of the commands are very powerful and you could mess something up if you're not careful. The tutorial needs to be presented in a more organized way."

      "This seems like a perfect solution to the problem. There are many different pages you can go to off of this one website that could answer so many different questions one might have about powershell. It not only shows you how to set it up but training and resources are available as well. Again this really does seem like the perfect solution."

      "This is a good resource if you already know some programming. I used it mainly as a reference to learn scripts to modify my database and day to day tasks for work. It won't teach you the fundamentals, instead it jumps right into PowerShell. You do need a little bit of background in another language."
