Description

It would be great if PowerShell was able to (natively) provide user notifications, especially in a way that could also leverage the Windows 8 notifications. You can do most of what is needed on the notification area using [void] [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Windows.Forms") but even this is somewhat limited and "clunky".

From the forums, quite a few people would like to have the script run in background but notify users of activity, and better ways to do this would be very helpful.
