PowerShell v2

Just seen a question about PowerShell v2. PowerShell v2 was a huge step forward when it appeared in October 2009 as part of Windows 7 / Server 2008 R2

Windows 7 support finishes 14 January 2020

Windows Server 2008 R2 support finishes 14 January 2020

That’s less than 6 months.

PowerShell v2 isn’t mentioned in the Microsoft documentation which starts at PowerShell v3

If you’re still using PowerShell v2 its beyond time to move to a later version.

    Exactly Richard.
    I enjoy ISE everyday, but however, I use VScode for some features that doesn’t exist in ISE (to my knowledge) : Better alignment of the code in particular, but also preview of certain types of files (html, md, xlsx, …) with the corresponding extensions.

    On a daily basis, I’m using PS 5.1, ISE, and VScode on my professional laptop.
    On my personal computer, it’s the same thing, and also PS6.2.2 and PS7 preview3. But I admit that for these 3 versions, “the paint doesn’t seem dry” (litteral traduction from a french expression)

    P.S. : Please, excuse me if my English is not very academic. It’s not my native language.
