The Future of Managing Microsoft Products - PowerShell
One key message that I got from both Microsoft TechEd's that I have attended was around how Microsoft plans for its products to be managed: PowerShell. Some might say that the "grey beards" have infiltrated Redmond and put a CLI management system into the products. With the planned release of PowerShell v3.0 in Windows Server 2012, PowerShell becomes the key skill for IT Professionals to learn. If they do not, they might be left behind.

UPDATED! PowerShell and MS TechEd - Downloading the Videos
As many of you have seen that attended TechEd, a majority of the videos from TechEd are posted now to the MyTechEd site via Channel 9. In the past, there have been some great folks making scripts to download all of the videos and 2012 is no exception. The two that are the best at what they do are great in and of themselves. I decided to mash them up for myself and love the results.
