Only sysadmins really have interest in learning PowerShell.
I don't know about .NET developers. They could have some value in knowing
it, but I don't know the .NET community.

What is your target audience?
Among the general Windows users, no.
Among developers on Windows (using Windows only as a desktop to work on
remote systems or OS independent applications), no.
Among .NET developers, I don't know.
PowerShell is still quite new and marketed only at Windows sysadmins.

Personally I still do my Windows desktop administration tasks with NT batch
files, WSH (JavaScript) and sometimes Perl (most of my Perl code is system
independent stuff).
