Monad Dir Highlighting

I'm currently experimenting with the new microsoft shell monad. I always liked the directory en executable highlighting in the linux shell, so I just build a quick script to highlight the directories in an ls query.

$colItems = dir
foreach ($objItem in $colItems)
if ($objItem.MshIsContainer )
{ write-host $objItem.Name -foregroundcolor "Blue"}
elseif ( ($objItem.Extension -eq ".exe") -or ($objItem.Extension -eq ".msh") )
{ write-host $objItem.Name -foregroundcolor "Green" }
{write-host $objItem.Name}

Remove Monad for .net 2.0 beta

I installed a beta for monad, the new Microsoft Shell, that needed the asp.net 2.0 beta. But after going live for Visual Studio, I couldn't remove monad, and it didn't run either because the .net beta wasn't available.

How to correct this problem? I figured this out:

So I deleted the Monad folders by hand and all the registry settings, and it worked :D
