It’s been an interesting year – one in which we’ve seen the PowerShell community blossom from a group of passionate BetaPlace users, to a much larger and more diverse community.

At Microsoft, we have a tradition for celebrating times like this. When their anniversary rolls around, many people place chocolate on a chair outside of their office – usually 1 lb. for every year they’ve been at Microsoft. It’s a great tradition – the people you work with get to indulge a little, and everybody enjoys the water cooler type of conversation that tends to happen.

If you own a blog, add a comment with a link to what you consider your “best” post in the last year or so. If you don’t own a blog, add a comment with a link to a blog post that you consider to be very insightful or interesting. Then, click around and enjoy the water cooler conversation!
Now, on for another year!
