I "enjoy" all of MS's f---ups. In a smug, distant way that's useless for good software engineering. :wink: But no I have not tried to use it. Gods willing, I never will have to.

I thought wow this has potential, until I read this in the manual…it looks like over bloated directx and any other Microsoft api…OTT

quote from book "Don’t worry about the details of the above syntax for now – we’ll cover that later. The key point is that

you usually get an object “foo” by saying

get-foo –option1 –option2 bar

rather than saying something like

new foo()

as you would in an object-oriented language.
