As I was more than halfway through putting my list together for this blog I ran across the TechNet article where I sourced the links and some of the content for this posting: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff621084.aspx

Just 3 articles away I ran across the Stsadm to Windows PowerShell mapping (SharePoint Foundation 2010) article which calls out the subset of commands that are available in SharePoint Foundation.
