Response to: Why not JScript?

I think one could make a very good argument for JScript. Especially with the integration into the .NET Framework, it is an attractive option. I'm not sure why it hasn't picked up as big of a following (from what I've seen) for doing sys admin scripting as VBScript.


I've done a lot with Javascript in HTML, but not in the WSH environment. One thing I may do to write companion JScript examples for all of the code in the AD Cookbook: http://www.rallenhome.com/books/adcookbook/code.html. Then I can look at the web logs and see what is the most popular.

    I for one would appreciate more and better Jscript support. I've found some problems using VBScript in some places(specifically there are some nasty bugs in ActiveX scripts embedded in SQL Server).
