Windows Scripting for a Unix guy...

Windows

sn4265 (1096991) writes "I'm a diehard Unix/Linux biggot, and happily so. Unfortunately, my new job requires support of literally dozens of Windows servers in addition to the REAL servers. Thankfully most of this work is done by the other members of my team. I have been developing an Intranet site for our organization and company that is basically a system information site for things like hardware information, user account management, and SAN details. This is pretty much a breeze on the Unix side with Perl and shell scripts, but I'm at a loss when it comes to the Windows side of this.

What is the best way to handle this kind of scripting in Windows? Perl on Windows? Windows Scripting? Powershell? Something I haven't even heard of? Are there any "must have" books out there for this?"
