In the My PS … series of blog entries this entry lists the SnapIns and Modules I use (regularly).
Note that the following list is my personal list and that it is definitely not my aim to list all available PowerShell snapins and modules. That would be a sheer impossible task, seen the abundance of the currently available snapins and modules.
In the Fmt column I tried to indicate in which format the add-on comes, as a snapin, as a module or as both. The entries that have src in this column have to be dot-sourced.
In the PSv column you can find which PowerShell version the add-on requires.
The Bit column indicates, where possible, if the add-on provides a 32- and/or a 64-bit version. Some add-ons come with their own DLLs and I had to rely on the author’s information to fill in this column.

I will try to update/correct this table regularly but feel free to let me know if you happen to have corrections or more recent information.
And you’re of course welcome to send pointers to snapins and modules not in this table that you consider useful.
