One of the appealing features of Windows PowerShell is that it can be
extended. You are not limited to the commands that Microsoft ships. You can load
additional commands and functionality via a module. Many other Microsoft product
teams and 3rd party vendors deliver PowerShell solutions for their products via
modules, sometimes for free! Even the PowerShell community offers a wealth of
free modules. That's the beauty of a module: anyone can create one!
