A Hyper-V lab for your PowerShell sandbox
When learning and playing with new technology like PowerShell, a lab environment is extremely beneficial. Some of the benefits are:

- Components can be added to or removed from a lab as needed.
- Actions that are considered risky to perform in a production environment can be performed safely in a contained lab.
