I would like to know what benefits the average geek could get out of Powershell. So take people who spend all their time in front of their computer, but who aren't necessarily programmers. Gamers, anime and hardware freak, or just general computer geeks. What benefits would these non-technical users get out of learning a command line/scripting language? Any increase of productivity?
I have always been intrigued by command-line/scripting tools, because geeks far cooler (geekier) than I use them and swear by them. But besides automating a folder RAR-ing and backing up over a network share once per week, I don't know what uses command-lines would be for someone like me, but perhaps I would find it more useful once I learned it?
