Windows Forms with PowerShell

SAPIEN came out with an awesome form builder for PowerShell called PrimalForms.  I decided to give it a whirl.  It really makes short work of making a native Windows GUI.  For my first project I made a quick and dirty app that allows me to get disk fragmentation data for a remote server using the DefragAnalysis method of Win32_Volume.  I used the PrimalForms GUI to create my form, and then I only had to fill in the button1 click handler and the form load handler, add a small function for printing to the text box, and voila!
