Working with systems management technologies I have learned that making use of scripting languages in many forms is inevitable. Some people still make use of DOS to script batch files and this is fine depending on the required output. VB scripting is also still useful and continues to be widely used. PowerShell has probably shown the biggest increase in market share in the past few years. However, the choice of scripting method you apply is up to you. Choose the format that works the best for you and will get you to your goal.
Feel free to browse through the categories listed on the site. You are most likely to find mostly PowerShell based scripts, but if I happen to find an alternative in another scripting language I will update the post with links to that. If you have any alternative scripts that also give the same output you may send them to me to be included for the benefit of the community.
