Which PowerShell Versions are Users Running?

Monday, June 20th, 2016 by June Blender
In March 2016, SAPIEN Technologies, Inc. posted a survey asking users and administrators which versions of Windows PowerShell they're running. We got 148 responses by the April 8 when we closed the survey. This blog post reports the findings. While reading them, please keep in mind that this is not a statistically valid survey. We didn't select users or control for anything. Still, I did not expect these results. I might be a bit naïve about enterprise computing, but I'm surprised by the widespread adoption of Windows PowerShell 4.0 and 5.0. My sense is that the community moved much more…   More »

Which versions of PowerShell do you run?

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016 by June Blender
The PowerShell team released Windows PowerShell 5.0 on Windows 10 last year and just re-released Windows Management Framework (WMF) 5.0 for earlier versions of Windows. But, we know from years of experience that many people don't upgrade their versions quickly. It takes time to get to know and trust a new version. In a large enterprise, it takes time to do the parallel testing to certify that a new product is secure and compatible with the software that the organization uses. Take the survey: Which version of Windows PowerShell do you use? For those of us who are writing scripts and modules to share, this…   More »

Running PowerShell Scripts: Survey Results

Monday, February 8th, 2016 by June Blender
We're always evaluating the best, easiest, and most efficient ways to write, run, and publish Windows Powershell scripts and modules. But, our starting point is always how people work now. We were curious about how PowerShell scripters, including managers, ran scripts, and how their employees ran scripts written for them.   To gather this information, SAPIEN Technologies, Inc. created an online survey about the ways in which users run PowerShell scripts. We encouraged users to participate in a blog post and several posts on Facebook and Twitter. And, people really responded. We collected 88 responses between 12/16/2015 and 1/05/2016.  …   More »

New blog poll: Which PrimalScript panels do you use regularly?

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013 by Alex Riedel
Look to the right. A new blog poll is up. We would like to know which panels in PrimalScript you use regularly. That doesn’t mean you need to have one visible all the time to check it. If you use it, in any fashion, check it. If you don’t use, don’t check it. Don’t even know what it is or what it does? Don’t check it. We are always looking and verifying if the features PrimalScript has are of any use to you. If they are not, we’d rather remove them to keep the application trim and tailored to your…   More »

Look right! New survey.

Monday, October 1st, 2012 by Alex Riedel
If you glance to the right of this post you see a new survey. It’s about how you open files in our products. Please spend the few seconds, consider the answers and click. It doesn’t take long and it doesn’t hurt, I promise. Polls like this help us consider which areas should get more attention than others. It allows us to put the focus on features you use rather than the ones you don’t. So please, use the surveys. If a poll triggers a suggestion please post in our wish list forum. If you have a more elaborate suggestion that…   More »
