Advantage of PowerShell over STSADM

In SharePoint 2010, new concept called Power Shell is introduced. The main adavantage of using Windows Power Shell over STSADM is follows:
  • Windows PowerShell is built on the Microsoft .NET Framework and accepts and returns .NET Framework objects. Hence, can interact with .Net objects directly.
  • Here we use commandlets (cmdlet) instead of commands. Commandlet is a instance of .Net objects
  • We can automate the tasks using power shell scripts.
  • Windows PowerShell also gives you access to the file system on the computer and enables you to access other data stores, such as the registry and digital signature certificate stores.
