I are a dinosaur and I, too, have avoided PowerShell.
Having said that, I do find myself using it.

Over time, I've seen scripting done in various tools: VBScript, PERL, etc... but PowerShell seems to be the emerging tool.

Last week, I had to find a method to get the amount of memory installed on a computer and store that value; I COULD have done it in VBScript with WMI, but PowerShell was available and not that difficult to use.

I Googles the various pieces: get the installed memory, how to store the value in the system I'm using... and put them together into a single entity... and it worked the first time I ran it.
