I guess powershell is used mainly for scripting, as a tool to automatize administration tasks.
However, I am a begginer 2 intermediate programmer and I want to use it as a "normal-task" language. I want to make things such as little-games, imaging processing, small GUI applications, some kind of internet messaging program using sockets, etc etc. I know it´s possible to make this kind of application with powershell, since I can use .NET and COM stuff. Besides, I want to learn .NET and I think powershell may be a start...
My question is: is it a good idea? Should I use powershell scripts for this kind of application? Which are powershell script limitations for this kind of programming?
