how does Powershell compares with Autohotkey?

I know the webpage with all the Autohotkey commands and their parameters and I get more or less the idea what Autohotkey is capable of, how about a webpage like that for Powershell?

you mean like besides http://powershell.com/cs/ ?

But since:

Windows PowerShell is Microsoft's task automation framework, consisting of a command-line shell and associated scripting language built on top of, and integrated with the .NET Framework. PowerShell provides full access to COM and WMI, enabling administrators to perform administrative tasks on both local and remote Windows systems.

AHK isn't really done through Command-Line shells...

And it doesn't need .NET installed, unlike PowerShell.
And you can compile a script to application, so your user doesn't need AutoHotkey.
And it is easier to use (even though PowerShell is very user-friendly, in comparison to other options).
And there is an active and supportive user community.
