Modification of powershell script

This is one really great script, extremely useful. I'm just getting into power shell and loving it.  I would love to increase the usefulness of this script to add the following features:

Retrieve Hot fixes installed on local or remote machine indicated:  Get-Hotfix - Description Update or Get-HotFix –ComputerName localhost
Identification of Processes using the most memory: ps | sort -p ws | select -last 5

System Information ie. OS info, Hard Drive Space/ Free space available, memory.  

This is really a great. Unless there is another one out there that includes this information already.  Would love to have this incorporated
