PowerShell 3.0–Now with a legible registry provider!

I don’t need to say anything to accompany these pictures. A screenshot or three is worth a thousand words:

PS C:\> gi hklm:\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion

    Hive: Registry::HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows

Name                           Property
----                           --------
currentversion                 SM_GamesName             : Games
                               SM_ConfigureProgramsName : Set Program Access and Defaults
                               CommonFilesDir           : C:\Program Files\Common Files
                               CommonFilesDir (x86)     : C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files
                               CommonW6432Dir           : C:\Program Files\Common Files
                               DevicePath               : C:\windows\inf
                               MediaPathUnexpanded      : C:\windows\Media
                               ProgramFilesDir          : C:\Program Files
                               ProgramFilesDir (x86)    : C:\Program Files (x86)
                               ProgramFilesPath         : C:\Program Files
                               ProgramW6432Dir          : C:\Program Files
                               SM_AccessoriesName       : Accessories
                               PF_AccessoriesName       : Accessories

Now here’s the corresponding view in the Registry Editor:
