I have recently started doing some minor scripting in Winbatch. This was the previous method they used to automate installation of software, so basically I continued doing what they did and used what they used. Basically what they did was run RIS to install the OS, then calls the EXE created by winbatch to run scripts to install software.
But is there any good reason I should be thinking of switching to Powershell or some other scripting language?
I saw these links on the Vista webpage and it was boasting how powerful it is.. but is it really any different? It's still relatively new, right? Anyone had a chance to use Powershell and see just how it is? We're in the process of learning about Vista and possibly switching from RIS to WDS sometime later (bc according to them RIS is harder to implement and WDS would possibly fix these problems).. so I wanted to know if it made sense to also the switch scripting languages? There was a comment I found somewhere online where they refered winbatch as "old"... should I be looking at something more current? I'm new to all this so any info is appreciated. Thanks!
